Mmm mmm mmm

(note… somehow the original entry on this pie was deleted. I don’t know how or why. Sadly, all of your sweet comments went with it. Anyway, I wanted to recreate it to the best of my memory because, well, it’s pie, it’s chocolate, it’s mint ice cream. It just needs to be here 🙂

Now that our mint has grown to the size of a Cadillac, we can put it off no longer…

It’s Mint Ice Cream time!

Of course, seeing as how I made promise, and you know, a promise is a promise, I felt it would be wrong to make only the ice cream, and not a pie on which to put it.

Enter, the Brownie Pie.

Prettiest Pie I Ever Did See

Friends, can I just say that this might be God’s gift to the pie world? I mean you know me, I love a good pie… peach, strawberry, blueberry, apple, pecan, even peanut butter, but this one, this one might be the crowning glory.

Oh! The way it rises up, all souffle like, fills the house with the aroma of good, dark, molten chocolate… for a moment I knew not if I was on earth or gone to my sweet reward.

I’d love to share the recipe with you, but since it is the creation of pie guru Ken Haedrich, I guess I better just tell you to buy his book. I’ve made MANY of his pies and they are all good, but even if they weren’t, this one alone would be worth the price of the book. It’s that good. Honest.

I’d also love to show you a photo of how our ice cream looked, all lovely and melty on top of the warm pie, but mostly it just looked like an empty plate and a licked clean spoon.
