Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie

Chocolate Pie

You wouldn’t think I needed another rejuvenating California fix after my recent trip to LA, but I did. I went to San Francisco for ten days last week and just about died I was so incredibly happy and relaxed.

I got to explore more of the city and a lot of the East Bay. I got to go north to Muir Woods to breathe in that amazing redwood scent and to Stinson beach to dig my feet in the sand while enjoying a picnic with one of my favorite people in the world. I got to spend the whole time with some of my closest friends from high school and college. I got to relax, bake, and go running and hiking; I got to try some pretty freakin’ outstanding restaurants and some trendy SF bars.

Ok…I’ll stop now :)

So I made this delicious Mexican Chocolate Cream Pie that I’ve been dying to share with you! Shockingly, I didn’t stray too much from the recipe, so I’m gonna send you to the source. I just added 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper cause I wanted the extra spice. Be bold! Go for it! The cream evens out the kick of the spice, and the sweetness of the crust with the warm cinnamon addition makes everything sing. Really…make this now. It’s pretty straight-forward, and who knows, it could be a new Thanksgiving favorite!
