Today I have a VERY special guest post – from my MOM! Every year I look forward to Thanksgiving. I love spending time with my family, having a couple of days off work, and going shopping on Black Friday. One of my FAVORITE parts of Thanksgiving is my mom’s Sin Pie. She makes it ONCE a year – on Thanksgiving. It is amazingly delicious. Today she is sharing her recipe with you!
Hello, I am Glenneth’s Mom, and I have promised the recipe for our Thanksgiving “Sin Pie.” The official name of this dessert is “Chocolate Delite”, and you may have had it under this name before. It has always been Glenneth’s favorite dessert, and by only serving it once a year, I think that makes it more special.
The hardest part of this dessert is the first two layers. First you make the crust of butter, flour and pecans. It is not easy to get this pressed into a 9 X 13 pan. I also have burnt it by not watching it carefully enough. One year I threw the crust out twice before being pleased with the third one.
The next layer of the cream cheese, powdered sugar and cool whip also is a very thin layer. The secret to getting this down correctly is that the first layer has to be completely cool. After this is correctly made, it’s smooth making from then on.
Glenneth talking now: Doesn’t it look amazing? It is definitely an indulgence and not a “healthy” dessert. And trust me – I indulge. I typically have a piece (or two) on Thanksgiving and then eat it for breakfast to power up for Black Friday shopping. Just a little over 2 months until I can enjoy this dessert again!
What dessert are you most looking forward to this holiday season? What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Have a healthy day!
