Recipe time: Possum Pie

Posted By on Thu, Apr 1, 2010 at 12:00 AM



The recent addition to the Arkansas meat market, the opossum, has brought in much mail requesting recipes utilizing the nocturnal marsupial. It’s taken a bit of searching, but a couple of local restaurant owners have passed along recipes for some of their favorites.  More on this budding new agricultural industry over at Tie Dye Travels.  Recipe for Possum Pie on the jump. 



Possum Pie

  • 1 package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 package rendered opposum fat, softened*
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 9 inch graham cracker crust
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1-3/4 cups cold milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup creamed opossum**
  • 1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/3 cup instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped
    • 12 to 16 pecan halves

    In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, opposum fat and sugar until smooth. Spoon into crust. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

    In a bowl, whisk half the milk, vanilla, creamed opossum and vanilla pudding for two minutes. Let stand for two minutes or until soft-set. Spoon over the pecans.

    Whisk other half of the milk and the chocolate pudding. Let stand for two minutes or until soft-set. Spoon over the vanilla-possum layer.
