(Pasta frolla al cioccolato, metodo italiano.) Next up: Black Bottom Chocolate Pie.
Absolutely beautiful! Now where did I put my home made whipped cream????
Would you mind sharing the recipe?
Been many years since I have had a home made chocolate cream pie!!! And a chocolate crust to boot!!! Can't ask for anything better!!! 😁
Additionally, that dough makes a nice chocolate cookie
My goodness! You never cease to amaze me. I wish I were nearby, I'd buy up so much stuff from you. Nice!
And I'm not even a dessert person. That's quite a high egg to flour/oil ratio. Does this make the crust chewier?
Being but a humble home chef/dabbler, I am in no way qualified to comment on how different ratios of ingredients act. That being said I can best describe this pretty classic southern Italian sweet short pastry as cookie like; in fact I used the scraps to make some very nice plain chocolate cookies! Regional ingredients I understand a little better than how they interact. In southern Italia oil is king, thus it is the fat of choice. By contrast in the northern regions you see much more dairy, natrualy your short pastry would incorporate butter instead of oil. Smile....
Will gorgeous and delicious sounding pie, wonderful work.
