Today is a big day, yall. Like we need dessert to celebrate kind of day. Its national Pi Day! Today is March 14th or 3-14 which is referred to as Pi Day. And if you are like me [and millions of other people] you celebrate Pi Day with pie. Makes sense right? [Pie always makes sense.] And since we are having pie, we might as well have a cup of coffee. Or cut the middle man and have a coffee pie. A frozen tiramisu pie to be exact.
Around Christmas time my mom and I were in the cooking mood so we decided to try our hand at homemade tiramisu. And it was awesome. And actually really easy to make. So when I started thinking of pie recipes for Pi Day, my mind immediately went to tiramisu. [Well, it actually went to 100 different possibilities but settled on this one. My mind wanders when it comes to food.]
So there are two camps when it comes to tiramisu – the cook your eggs camp and the don’t need to cook your eggs camp. I didn’t realize there were two camps until after I made and ate this pie. My pie resides in the non cooked eggs camp, but its an easy switch to the other side. I’m fairly certain both ways taste delicious. Plus, its frozen so that just makes everything better. And coffee. Need I say more?
If I had to choose between the frozen and the traditional version, I think I would pick frozen. Its like a frozen coffee covered in whipped cream and sprinkled with cocoa. Its like a frozen piece of love in a lady finger pie crust. Need I say more? [I won’t. Promise.]
- Approx. 30 ladyfingers
- 5 eggs, separated
- 1 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons for the crust
- 1 cup coffee
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- 3 8 oz tubs of mascarpone cheese
- pinch of salt
- cocoa for dusting
In step one, place the egg yolks and sugar over a double boiler and mix while they cook. They should still turn out pale and thick.
Cut with a warmed knife.
