Introduction: Avocado Chocolate Custard Pie
This is an easy-peasy pie with a slightly unconventional combination of ingredients, which is always fun.
• 7 egg yolks
• 1 can unsweetened condensed milk
• cinnamon 1 or 2 tsp.
• sweetener (equivalent of 2 tbsp. of sugar)
• two tbsp. of cocoa powder
• 1 c. flour
• 0.25 powdered sugar/sweetener
• 0.25 c. chopped nuts (I used peanuts)
• 0.5 c. melted butter
1 large avocado
Step 1: Make Chocolate Custard
Combine all ingredients for the custard in a small pot or pan. Heat on the stovetop over low heat, mixing constantly, until it thickens (about 15 minutes). Turn off the stove and set custard aside.
Step 2: Make Crust
Combine all dry ingredients for the crust in a bowl and mix well. Add in melted butter and mix until even in texture. Press on to a small cookie sheet or baking pan (8 by 6 inches or so). Cover with custard. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes.
Step 3: Decorate, Chill and Eat!
Arrange slices of avocado on top. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
