Pie And Ice Cream

I have been working feverishly to perfect the marshmallow recipe, and it's just about done. Only a touch more tweaking left to do. I'm so excited! Once the recipes are perfect, I'm going to put them together as a small marshmallow e-book (along with a how-to video clip). Think of it as a modern-day 'zine. Then everyone can make them at home! Don't worry, this marshmallow pie is one of the recipes.

I brought a couple of the pies to a gathering last weekend, and both pies were devoured in under a minute. I kid you not! I wish that I had gotten it on film, because it was truly something to see.

I haven't forgotten about the whipped topping, but did put it on hold while I finish the marshmallow recipes. Who would have thought that the whipped topping could be such a tough nut to crack.

Now, on to some homemade ice cream...

This recipe came about because I needed a quick and easy ice cream recipe for one of my segments on "Better". It's not only creamy and utterly delicious, but extremely easy to make (provided you have a blender and ice cream maker). I am going to try and tape this recipe, along with another new recipe for vegan soft serve, in the next week or so for Everyday Dish.

Mmmm! It looks incredible!
For some reason, it reminds me of a un-vegan pie my un-vegan aunt used to make with cream and Creme de Menthe (she used a chocolate cracker crust and chocolate chips on top like yours).
So I'm thinking Creme de Menthe vegan Marshmallows LOL

Wow! Everything is so fluffy and creamy and perfect!

I loved your story Gaia, and I think that Creme de Menthe is a brilliant idea! I am going to give it a try this afternoon. It's funny because when people see the pie, they automatically think that it's a whipped cream/chiffon pie from the look of it.

Thanks Destiny!

I want more marshmallow pie!! They were both awesome. And we did eat them super fast. I had to run to get my fork!

julie hasson said...

I'm sad to say I've never had marshmallow pie, but I'm SO happy that I'll be able to get the recipe for yours soon! The pie and the ice cream both look too good to be true.

yes, me and the funky stuff (jess) were sad that we missed out on your pie. have you ever heard of cream pies? they're big at the amish-style restaurants that populate my hometown and ohio and pennsylvania. does the marshmallow stuff have a whipped like consistency? b/c dang! peanut butter cream pie was delicious! it had a pudding layer, then whipped cream then a topping of peanut butter-mixed-with-powdered-sugar crumbs. they also had coconut and banana. yum!
oh, by the way, it's a yes on the pistachio kitchen aid. contact me (via ppk?) and maybe i can pick it up soon. (my mom wants to see it, she's in town right now)

yay for julie!
