What my degree in IPE didn't teach me about baking, DIY, fitness, and life…
So yesterday was Pi day. For the nerds among us, that’s 3.14… long live the mystery of the magic number =^p; For the dessert-lovers among us, bring on the pie; and for those that are both, it’s just a magical day. =D Anyway, this week a friend of mine asked me to make a dessert for a dinner party she’s hosting. My brief: it had to feature chocolate and speculoos (biscoff). When I asked what she had in mind as far as cookies vs cake vs fudge vs brownies go, she said to make it a combination of all of them – music to my ears.
I took inspiration from Cookies & Cups pretzel crusted peanut butter blondie pie and Brown Eyed Baker’s take 5 candy bar pie and here’s what I came up with – Speculoos Brownie Cookie Dough Pie. It’s a fudgey dark chocolate brownie, littered with chewy speculoos cookie dough balls housed in a speculoos (graham cracker style) crust. And that’s not all! The cookie dough balls have a surprise inside – a piece of white chocolate covered in speculoos spread. And the whole thing is covered with a speculoos ganache. Yes, it’s a calorie-bomb fit for Pi(e) day =) Check out the journey:
