But there’s always some sort of dessert up on the wipeboard — and what it is, changes every day. Might be sweet potato or pecan pie or cobbler, it‘s $2.49 and it‘s always good. I lucked out. This particular day it was chocolate cream — and it came out soft. Instead of being topped with a Cool Whip style topping, it was topped with a handmade cream — and I know exactly how it’s made and what it’s made from because it’s the same recipe I use for easy frosting, no joke.
But I never thought to put it on pie before — and in this pie, it is excellent, sitting atop a rich and thick chilled chocolate cream that’s the consistency of cheesecake without that slightly tart flavor. The whole shebang is topped with chocolate shavings and is served unglamorously. And if the sugar didn’t just knock me out I’d eat six of them.
