If you have seen the film Waitress starring Keri Russell, then you have heard of mermaid pie.
As I have shared pictures and tweets regarding my Mermaid Pie making sessions, I always get asked what pie is it? Is it a fish pie no, but it’s obvious why you would think it was. It’s a sweet dessert pie! When I say sweet, I mean it’s for the ultimate sweet tooth! I live with one so it goes down well.
- 5 tbsp Butter
- 8oz Large Marshmallows plus small ones for the topping
- 1/2 Cup of Milk (Soya Milk works too)
- 1 1/2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1oz of Grated Chocolate
- 200g of Golden Grahams or Cornflakes
First, preheat the oven to 375degrees
Blitz the Golden Grahams or Cornflakes in a food processor until crumb-like. Melt the butter and add to the crumbs, press into a pie dish and bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
Heat the Marshmallows and milk over a low heat until smooth, stirring constantly. Remove from the pan and cool completely for approx 30 minutes.
In a large bowl beat the cream on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Fold the marshmallows mixture into the whipped cream with the chocolate. Spoon the filling into the pie crust.
Refrigerate for 3 hours.
Decorate with the mini marshmallows and serve.
