“I’d like S’more Please…”

13 year old Alexander Paul Matla (yes, my son) decided to make his first dessert to celebrate his sister’s Permanent Resident status in Singapore.  The dessert? Chocolate S’more Pie…with all the trimmings! As a treat, I promised to share the spotlight and give Alex a well deserved top spot on our blog! Son, this one’s for you!

This is a three part recipe and you’ll need to prep your ingredients in these stages:

One:  The Crust:

  1. 1 package of graham crackers

  2. 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  3. 1/4 cup sugar

Two: The Filling:

  1. 2/3 cup sugar

  2. 1/4 cup cornstarch

  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt

  4. 4 large egg yolks

  5. 3 cups whole milk

  6. 5 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), melted

  7. 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted

  8. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  9. 1 teaspoon vanilla

Three: The Topping:

  1. 4 egg whites

  2. Dash of salt

  3. 7 oz. jar marshmallow creme

And now, this is all you have to do:

For the crust, preheat your oven to 350°F and place your rack in the middle of the oven.  Place your graham crackers into your trusty food processor and give them a good pulsing, until you’ve got a nice even texture worthy of a pie crust base. Combine your melted butter, graham crackers and sugar in a medium sized bowl and then once combined place it all in the bottom of a spring form pan. Try to pat it down evenly across the entire base.  Bake for 10-15 minutes  though Alex says he’d take it out a
