New Year’s resolutions? What New Year’s resolutions?
I realize it’s just 17 days into the New Year and Chocolate Cream Pie may not have been one of your resolutions. But it was one of mine. When I said I wanted to eat better I meant (you know) better. What’s better than Chocolate Cream Pie?
The older I get the more I realize that the most satisfying desserts are the sugary treats we craved as kids: cookies, sundaes, and anything with chocolate “pudding”. My version of Chocolate Cream Pie is a retro-inspired “pudding” dessert that will make your childhood self proud of the adult you’ve become. So when I say let’s all eat better this year, I mean bring on the Chocolate Cream Pie with its gravity-defying Swiss meringue.
Still, I understand that some of you out there may have meant something else entirely when you resolved to eat better this year. I support that too. In fact you can thank me for this post. By making this Chocolate Cream Pie and posting it here in blogland, I’ve fallen on my sword so to speak.
I made this pie. I ate this pie. I photographed this pie.
All you have to do is pin this pie. There are no calories in pinning. So pin away. Then pop on over to your Chocolatey Treats Pinterest board and virtually eat as much of this pie as you like. Which may be exactly your definition of eating better.
And for those of us who resolved to eat better (in a whole other way) I’ve included the recipe. We can indeed eat better while eating pie. It’s the kind of pie you remember from childhood– cranked up a notch. It’s got a cookie crust and rich topping that makes it both fun and sophisticated. It’s exactly how I define eating better. GREG
