Chocolate Pat-in-Pan Pie Crust

3/4
cup plus 2 tablespoons Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/4
cup powdered sugar
1/4
cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts
2
tablespoons unsweetened baking cocoa

Filling

1/2
cup milk
32
large marshmallows
1/3
cup Irish cream liqueur
1 1/2
cups whipping cream
Grated semisweet baking chocolate, if desired

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, mix all crust ingredients until soft dough forms. Press firmly and evenly against bottom and side of ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely on cooling rack, about 30 minutes.
  • 2 In 3-quart saucepan, heat milk and marshmallows over low heat, stirring constantly, just until marshmallows are melted. Refrigerate about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture mounds slightly when dropped from a spoon. (If mixture becomes too thick, place saucepan in bowl of warm water; stir mixture until proper consistency.) Gradually stir in liqueur.
  • 3 In chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream with electric mixer on high speed until stiff. Fold marshmallow mixture into whipped cream. Spread in pie crust. Sprinkle with grated chocolate. Cover; refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours but no longer than 48 hours. Store in refrigerator.

Expert Tips

Top pie slices with chocolate curls for a restaurant-fancy finish.

No liqueur in your house? Use 1/4 cup half-and-half plus 2 tablespoons cold coffee and 1 teaspoon almond extract (or 1/3 cup Irish cream-flavored nondairy liquid creamer) for the liqueur.
