3-5 Layered Chocolate Pie
.. and a brownie pie!
It’s been a minute since we talked chocolate so I’m hella making up for it this week =)
new on bbs
Pie crust (it can be plain, brown butter or chocolate!) housing a fudgy, dark chocolate brownie filling. We’re par-baking the crust (ofc) and the brownie batter is pretty simple and straightforward. Plus - stabilized whipped cream (vanilla or chocolate!).
All butter, super flaky pie crust but make it chocolate flavored. This makes about 1.5 pie crust, I like making extra so I can get very thick edges that hold shape well.
maybe it’s kind of a tar heel pie idk
A cross between a brownie pie and a pecan pie: brown butter chocolate filling stuffed with crunchy pecans.
bb in choc that you can TASTE
My take on a chocolate cream pie: all butter crust (for this you can use the bb one or the chocolate!) and a thick layer of chocolate custard made with dark chocolate, dutch cocoa and brown butter.
reader review =)
“I made this pie last year for Thanksgiving and it was a HIT. Absolutely delicious. The chocolate is very rich and deep, which might not be traditional of a s’more, but is elevated and classy for a holiday dessert. I can’t wait to make it again this year for Thanksgiving…my guests have requested it. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. ❤️ “- Tami

“You help disabled people by making sure we’re not dying of starvation in our apartments…. Disabled culture is full of food sharing and abundance. It’s one of the many best-kept disabled secrets about how we love and show up for each other.” On food sharing within the disability community - Eater.
So pretty! These red-hued garden party photos from Doaa, taken to recreate a North African golden hour.
“For the Wampanoags and many other American Indians, the fourth Thursday in November is considered a day of mourning, not a day of celebration. Because while the Wampanoags did help the Pilgrims survive, their support was followed by years of a slow, unfolding genocide of their people and the taking of their land.” On celebrating Thanksgiving more mindfully - Washington Post.
“The colonists cooked many a pie: because of their crusty tops, pies acted as a means to preserve food, and were often used to keep the filling fresh during the winter months. And they didn’t make bland pies, either: documents show that the Pilgrims used dried fruit, cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg to season their meats. Further, as the colonies spread out, the pie’s role as a means to showcase local ingredients took hold and with it came a proliferation of new, sweet pies.” The first pies were savory!

The goal is to have next week’s newsletter go out to you by Tuesday, that way I can disrupt whatever baking plans you had set for the week and add something else to your list ;p We’ll go back to our regularly scheduled timing the week after.
If you’re new and want an idea for what’s on the ‘paid’ or ‘member’ side of this newsletter I want you to know exactly what you’re getting: it’ll be one exclusive recipe per newsletter, with notes on how to make it (tools, storage tips, recipe origins, etc) and there’s always a how-to video that shows the process which is ad free. The recipes here are a way for me to reclaim what I love doing: developing unique recipes without having to think about seo. Having them member-based means there’s a way to compensate for development process. I’ll give you an example: earlier this week I made a dish which used, ahem, ten eggs only to realize I needed to remake it... If that recipe is something that people are searching for on google, (ie. seo friendly!) then over time more people will find it, visit the blog and it will pay for itself via ad views and I can make back the cost of that process (and get paid for my labor). The recipes here are typically not something anyone is searching for and so they live in a space that is reader-supported: by people who know my work, want to support it and and have more of it. With members I get to share wild and innovative recipes that they wouldn’t find in anywhere else! … Now, time for one of those recipes =D

3-5 Layer Chocolate Pie
Oreos. A fudgy flourless cake/brownie-like situation, a dark chocolate ganache, a chocolate pudding and creamy chocolate whipped cream. Everything is chocolate and it’s glorious.
