Pie #2 – Mud Pie

I need to adjust my routine in order to work on the pies. My wife went shopping to pick up the ingredients I didn’t have. And for that I thank her.

A mud pie is nothing more than a cold fudge sunday in graham cracker crust. So very easy to make and quick too. It took about 30-45 minutes to put it together.

Blend a cup of graham cracker crumbs into a half stick of melted butter and form the crust into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake 15 minutes. Let cool completely. Your house will smell yummy. Spoon in a cup and a half of softened chocolate ice cream as a layer. Then layer a cup and a quarter of fudge sauce on top of that. Garnish the top with a quarter cup of slightly toasted almond chips on top. Wrap loosely with cellophane, separating the plastic wrap from the filling with toothpicks. Let set in the freezer. Make sure the surface is even:) Otherwise your frozen pie will list to the side.

The pie is quite rich and small slices are recommended:)
