Twilight Pie

Monday, January 26, 2009

This month's You Want Pies With That theme is "Literary Pie" chosen by Mary the Food Librarian (really, what did you expect from the Food Librarian?). So we had to bake a pie inspired by a book. Even though I am an avid reader this was too easy a decision for me! I knew I needed to make a pie inspired by the book Twilight by Stephanie Meyer! Yes, I am obsessed with Twilight and so is my husband! We read them over and over again, they are truly magnificent books and I would suggest Twilight to anyone of any age or gender!
So for this Twilight Pie I used the Marshmallow Mermaid pie recipe (I thought the white cream with chocolate flakes would appear like the inside of an apple... white with black seeds), a mini graham cracker pie crust, red sprinkles, and a pretzel for the stem of the apple.

I love it! I think this will be great to use as a filling also, like the hubby said! I will try for sure!

That is such a popular book, but one I haven't read.

Great job, your "book cover" is so cute and creative.

It sounds delish!

Great job! I considered a Twilight Pie, too - but I am glad I held off - I could have never topped yours!
Now back to thinking....agh.

I love it! The books are great. I just discovered them last summer, and read them all in about a week. Your pie is a great idea!
