Chocolate Marble Pie

I have been super busy making all of my Thanksgiving dishes ahead of time and freezing them just so I can been ahead of the game for when my family comes into town.

I have one oven and the last thing I want is to be stuck in the kitchen cooking  when I could be doing more productive things like have baby cuddles with my new, precious baby niece or break out Cards Against Humanity when all the parents are consumed in whatever it is that adults do at the adult side of the table.

I made this super delicious dish that I wanted to blog about and then realized I forgot to measure EVERYTHING!  So I will have to make it again and measure everything rather than eyeball it.

In the meantime, I had to make one more dessert and I decided to make it not only tasty, but also pretty.  I wanted it to look like a REAL DESSERT!

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup of almond flour
  • 2 tbsp avocado oi
  • l tbsp of cold water
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

Bake for 10-11 mins on 350.  I doubled this recipe and baked in a 9×15 pyrex baking dish.

Take a spoon or knife and move around the chocolate batter that is in the pie crust just to make mix it a bit since it might be congealing a bit.

Take a spoon and start drizzling the vanilla, in lines, up and down or across on the chocolate.  Then, with a fork or a knife make little pulls in the vanilla to make the marbling effect.
