National Pie Day in The Chocolate Cult

And the winner is Black Bottom Pie!

Here is my first ever attempt to make this treat using the next cookbook I have to review.



Attempts to find chocolate curls -- fail.

Attempts to follow vague directions about making them -- fail.

Used chocolate jimmies instead.






Layers are perfectly matched but I think I did an OK job here.  The top layer of whipped cream, again vague directions, not as good as just using Cool Whip I think.  The middle layer of custard is too much rum in my opinion but I put in what the directions said.  The chocolate layer was great.  The crust was plain but pretty good -- plain directions didn't ask for any fancy work on the pie edges so I didn't do any.

Over all fairly decent pie but not a very good set of instructions. I'll talk more about when I do the full book review.

Thanks for the link, Bridget. Unfortunately I have to judge the cookbook by what it said and it was totally unhelpful in the area of chocolate curls.

pegasuslegend, the pie seemed to have turned out well though a bit too much rum I think compared to chocolate but then I'm biased, aren't I?
