My summer has been full of pie. Blueberries, strawberries, apples, peaches, blackberries. Whatever the farmer's market served up, I was pie'ing up.
This past weekend, I needed a fruit break and ventured into the cocoa territory. The result was a you-have-to-taste-to-believe-it S'more pie with bittersweet chocolate, homemade marshmallows, and a graham cracker crust.
This bittersweet baby did not disappoint. I used Smitten Kitchen's recipe and would recommend it. Just prepare to devote at least 3-4 hours of time to the process and about 45 minutes of your intensely focused attention to get ingredients to the precise temperatures and consistency.
The marshmallow topping has the perfect candy crackle after broiling for a few minutes.
Oh, and sunflowers are in their seasonal prime right now. Get them in bunches, get them cheap, and be welcomed by their happy faces in the morning.
