cryx: Me, infront of a wall, with surprisingly dark hair (food)



Didn't remember to take a pic before wolfing down a segment. Apparently if left in the fridge it will get a mousse like consistency tomorrow. Omnomnom! [edit: it did firm up, but this pic was one of the more sloppy pies I've made, due to a mistake in my process that day!]




[Edit:] due to demand here is the recipe and it's American cups:
I'm still experimenting with this recipe as the crust was a little too crumbly to lift out neatly. I might need more marg, or more pressing with a spoon, or I have seen some sites that make this crust but bake it for 8 mins or so (and from previous brownie baking I know that you can get a very crisp edge with margarine)

Ingredients

For the crust:
# 2 1/4 cups of crushed Oreo cookie crumbs, finely ground (or other chocolate sandwich cookies) (about 2 packs of oreos)
# 2 1/2 ounces of melted margarine

For the filling:
1 1/2 boxes (12.3 ounce) firm silken tofu(room temperature)
10 ounces vegan dark chocolate, heated in the microwave on ten second intervals until melted
1 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup espresso, strong brewed coffee or chocolate soy milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Make the crust:
Instructions:
# Combine cookie crumbs with melted margarine in a bowl
# Pour the mixture into the 9 inch pie pan and press into the bottom and up the sides evenly
# Smooth the surface with the back of a spoon
# Refrigerate the chocolate pie crust for at least an hour

For the filling:

1. In a blender, add tofu and blend until smooth. Add melted chocolate, blending again until smooth. Add powdered sugar, espresso and vanilla and blend until mixture is smooth and fluffy.

2. Spread chocolate mixture into pie shell and top with crushed chocolate cookies. Refrigerate several hours or until firm enough to slice.

[edit:]
From experimenting draining/pressing the tofu really helps to stop it from being too sloppy, as does using a non silken firm tofu (although this does make for a moregrainy/gritty) texture. You also have to make sure the tofu isn't in any way off (blown packaging for example!)
