Triple Layer Chocolate Mousse Pie

Pie Month. It came. It went. And I’m terribly sad to see it go. I took on pie month as a challenge to myself to conquer pie dough. And conquer I did.

There was a double crust with shortening

A traditional dough, replacing the water with vodka for a flaky crust.

One from the pros at Cook’s Illustrated, with a touch of cinnamon, rolled in graham cracker crumbs.

A quick puff pastry that makes me believe I may never need store bought again.

And finally today’s simple tart recipe that was flaky, butter, and hands down my favorite of the bunch. This one will be my go to pie crust from now on.

I didn’t think I would enjoy 5 pies. But looking back, I’m totally glad I took on the challenge and won’t ever hesitate to throw a pie together again. It’s not as complicated as it looks. There really isn’t much to do wrong.

To create the look of the pie edge, I simply pressed a spoon into the dough about 1/2″ in then came back around about 1/4″ in. Easy as pie… 😉
