Cardamom and Saffron Flavored Peanut Butter Pie
Cardamom & Saffron flavored Peanut Butter Pie.
You need: 1 ready made8 inch frozen Pie shell 1 bar Godiva Dark chocolate with mint 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1/2 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup plain full fat cream cheese 1/2 cup condensed milk 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 1/2 teaspoon crushed cardamom seeds 10-12 strands saffron 1/4 cup confectioners sugar Chocolate curls for decorating (mine were rather straight)
In 300 F oven bake the frozen pie shell till its golden brown. Melt the chocolate bar (break it into little pieces first) along with the butter (microwave in a glass bowl for ~ 1 minute). Using a silicone brush, brush the chocolate onto the bottom & the sides of the baked pie shell. Place in refrigerator, while you prepare the filling.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the peanut butter, cream cheese & confectioners sugar till smooth. add the condensed milk & cardamom powder & mix to combine well. Combine the saffron & the heavy cream in a separate bowl & whip using a beater till stiff peaks form. Add about 1/3rd of the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture & fold in. (it makes incorporating the rest of the cream easier). add the remaining cream. Ladle the mixture onto the cold pie shell and refrigerate at least 3 hours, preferably overnight.
