First, Happy Thanksgiving! Whether it’s chillin’ in front of the game waiting for the damn turkey to cook or playing bingo with your super fantastical family, or helping out at the local soup kitchen; I truly hope you get to do what you want to do today. Personally, I will be playing bingo with my super awesome fantastical family, and overdosing on tryptophan. And I’m so very thankful that I am able to do this.
Second, I totally meant to put this post up last night! Unfortunately, life happened and it didn’t get posted. But the good news is it takes very little time to prepare and most likely you already have all the ingredients! If you don’t, I’m pretty sure Wegmans is open until 5pm. If you don’t need a last minute dessert today..this pie is great for Christmas or say any given Tuesday. No matter when you make it, it’s delicious!
This recipe is a pass down from my mom’s mom, Grandma Doris (although I’m pretty sure she probably made her own crust). It’s a French Cream pie with no cream! The recipe is for a regular normal pie. I just made it a few weeks ago, doubled the recipe, and made 12 individual little pies. Perfect for little ones!
French Cream Pie
- 3/4 C Sugar
- 1/2 C Butter
- 2 or 3 Chocolate squares, melted (I used Bakers semi sweet)
- 2 Eggs
- 1 Ready made graham cracker pie crust
- Mix sugar, butter and melted chocolate. Beat eggs in one at a time. Beat 15-20 minutes. Chill for at least 2 hours.
From my family to yours, have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
