BAMF chocolate pie....
Katie and Maggie brought salad to add to my calzones and pie and beers....twas a huge celebration of, well, Katie's massive good news which it is not my business to share with the interwebs.... let's just say she is AWESOME and they both have AWESOME news that has something to do with me... so you would pour some beers and make chocolate pie TOO.
This pie is gluten free and dairy free..vegan! But CHOCOLATE FULL.... I make it from scratch **** but the gestalt is: buy a chocolate crust and chocolate pudding and chocolate chunks (0r raspberries), put it together. making it vegan and gluten free yourself is not much harder! ****
You can see I had help all along the way..... this thing is
FLIPPIN' BEAUTIFUL is it not? Beauty is not everything, but why not strive for it?
In other news, my old pal Susan runs a cat shelter. She asked for a covered tumbler with a cat on top....I made some mugs too... have an awesome Saturday, I know I will!

Gary's BAMF ridiculously easy vegan, gluten-free no dairy chocolate pie
-preheat to 350
-grease 9 inch pie plate
-place into bowl: 1/2 cup earth balance non-butter and 1/2 cup tofutti non-cream cheese--soften in the 'wave 44 seconds or so, stir
-2nd bowl, combine 1.5 cups oat flour, dash of salt, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 2 TBS cocoa powder (no milk added, just chocolate baking powder like this)
-stir the 2 mixtures together, then spoon it onto the pie plate evenly so that it looks like a nice pie crust.
-prick bottom with a fork, bake uncovered 20 minutes, then cover top with foil, bake 15 minutes more, remove from oven and cool an hour +
vegan chocolate pudding for filling:
-in large saucepan, combine 2.25 cups soy milk, 4.5 TBS corn starch, a little less than a half cup cocoa powder, and a little less than a half cup of maple syrup
-heat on stove top at medium heat, whisking furiously until it thickens into...pudding. This seems to take forever! But it does not. Just keep whisking several minutes, don't let it burn, and suddenly it will turn REALLY thick and lovely.
making the pie:
Remove chocolate pudding from heat, spoon evenly into your pie shell, all DONE! Unless you want to add, as I did, chocolate chunks to the top, something like the Godiva chocolate bar I stole from the wife, in chunks, or chocolate chips or raspberries.
-cool on counter a while, then place into fridge for an hour or so to finish cooling then EAT...probably the yummiest thing on EARTH. I remember as a kid getting some kind of chocolate pie anytime we went out to eat....
