Dessertage du Jour - 21 November 2017

Dessert?! On this blog?! Surely you jest!

No, I'm quite serious.

We had a pie party at work today. There were the usual berry, pumpkin, lemon meringue, and so on - even a homemade coconut cream pie.
We got the word early that the organiser's definition of pie did not include quiche - quiche was right out, sadly.

What to do? Chicken pot pie came to mind (and went fairly quickly), but it's probably not all that popular cold, and with only microwaves and toaster ovens around, it might be difficult.

So there remained only one clear option: avocado cream pie.

It's simple, shocking, and actually very tasty.

In a food processor combine:
2 large-ish ripe avocadoes,
1 14oz can of Eagle Brand milk, and
1/3C lime juice.
Process till smooth.
Pour into a graham cracker crust (make your own if you wish).
Chill until firm (1+ hours) and enjoy.

Even the folks who were "afraid" of the pie tasted and enjoyed.

Highly recommended!
Happy Thanksgiving!
