1959 Mile High Raspberry Pie

Friday, January 18, 2013



Just a little peek from issue one of Hey Doll!- due in just two short weeks. We have a fantastic article from Elise Moore with gorgeous mid-century desserts and party games for valentine's day. Since she isn't too keen on gelatin I volunteered to whip up her two gelatin recipes so you can see how beautiful they are when they are complete.


Pj helped me with this recipe. He whipped the cream and got the egg whites to form stiff peaks with his new blender wand. There's a whole lot of whipping going on with this recipe so I highly recommend using a blender wand, hand or counter top mixer.

the pie is garnished with coconut but if you're not a fan of coconut, you can omit it and it's still just as amazing!


 This recipe dirties a lot of dishes but is well worth the mess! The pie is light as a cloud, cool and creamy and not too sweet. I will be making this one very frequently when the heat of the summer gets really bad. My sister's baby shower is coming up too so I think I will have to whip up another for that as well. Although we whipped and blended until the blender wand got tired, Pj is convinced and we messed up somewhere along the line and he says we will have to make another pie this week. I'm not sure if that's genuine concern or a guy's need for more yummy pie. Either way, I'm game!
