This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Spike of spikebakes. He threw a dart at Dorie’s Banana Coconut Ice Cream Pie, which is located on page 350 in Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Sorry this is almost late. I have been working morning and working out when I get home, so I haven’t had much time to do anything. I think I had time tonight because I am taking a night off working out. I am also under the impression that working out at night is making me more tired at work, so I am going to try my hardest to start getting up in the mornings and working out before work. Which is going to be extremely hard for me since I am not a morning person at ALL.
I did cave in and try this lovely dessert. To make it a little healthier and less tempting, I only made two mini tarts (1/8 of a recipe) and I used Soy Chocolate Ice Cream (that would be the healthier part). It actually turned out really well. Since I was in a hurry, I didn’t keep it in the freezer for the required 4 hours after putting it together so it was nice and soft and yummy.
I actually got Mike to eat one of the tarts which is actually surprising since he hates it when I sneak soy into stuff. I actually put tofu in a chocolate pie and didn’t tell him, until after the fact. He really liked the pie, but he wasn’t too happy about the fact that he ate tofu without knowing it :)
