lick-the-pot chocolate pudding pie

When I made my Lick-the-Pot Chocolate Pudding Pie, I didn’t realize that our TWD posting date would coincide with Pi Day– what a treat! I haven’t made a pudding pie like this in ages, and it was so simple to do. A crumb crust, pudding and whipped cream…no making pastry, prepping fruit, baking for two hours and then furiously scrubbing goopy bubble-over off your favorite sheet tray or the bottom of your oven.

Crumb crusts are the easiest and tastiest, IMO. I didn’t actually have the spice cookies called for, but I had some Teddy Grahams and a jar of pumpkin spice, so I made do. Watching a bowl full of teddy bears get zipped up in the food processor was highly entertaining. Making a luxe chocolaty tempered egg yolk pudding on the stovetop is the hardest part of this pie, but it really isn’t hard. The pudding is called “lick-the-pot” so sneaking a chef’s treat spoonful before filling the pre-baked crust and chilling the pie in the fridge is a must.

A mascarpone-whipped cream topping finishes the pie off, diner-style. Dorie says to serve the pie as soon as possible after the topping goes on, but I find that mascarpone is great way (and also the tastiest way) to stabilize whipped cream, and that it holds up for a couple of days without issue. I sprinkled some cookie crumbs and chocolate speckles all over the top for some extra pizzaz.

If you don’t have the book Baking with Dorie: Sweet, Salty & Simple by Dorie Greenspan yet, get it and join us as we bake through it every second and fourth Tuesdays! Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and all the other participation deets over on Tuesdays with Dorie!
