What happened to National Rice Pudding Day? Er, I’ll get back to you on that one. In the meantime, why not enjoy this huge, indoorsy distraction of s’more goodness?
It’s the tenth day of National Eat Dessert First! Month, an entire 31 days dedicated to a different themed dessert but, more importantly, getting those desserts onto our plates and palates! Each day will feature a new guest chef’s photos and recipes for each theme. If you’re interested in joining in for a dessert-tastic month, read the details at the Dessert Month Challenge post. It’s never too late to start!
Our decadent Day 10 entry features every indoor camper’s dream–a baked s’more pie, straight from your oven.
Ala’s note: If you’re looking for a graham cracker crust recipe that works every time, try 1 1/2 cups crushed graham crumbs, 6 tablespoons melted butter, 1/3 cup white sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix together, press into a pie tin, and bake at 350 degrees F until firm to the touch. Voila! Instant hassle-free graham cracker crust, chez vous!
THEMED ENTRY #10: BAKED S’MORES PIE
Courtesy of: Alicia
This is my attempt at a baked s’mores pie. I’ve never had s’mores before (and I haven’t tried my pie yet!), so I was really excited about giving this a shot.
I worked this out from a video at JoyOfBaking.com, but there really is nothing to it! I just made a regular graham cracker crust, baked for 12 minutes, spread some Nutella on it (because I’m one of those people who believes very few things in life can be ruined by too much Nutella), arranged the marshmallows and covered them with milk chocolate chips, and then back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
It looked pretty good straight out of the oven!
The video said not to be tempted into trying it right away, so I let it cool overnight. It lost some of its fluffiness, but it still looks pretty good! I’m looking forward to getting off work and trying it myself.
Happy S’mores Day!
