More Pah

Ah Suzette, Suzette…always taunting me into treating my family like lab rabbits showing my family how much I love them. “Looks like someone will be baking” indeed.

Th only thing to be decided was what.

Since Poor Laura couldn’t go to California to escape the warrant heat I thought I would do my part to cheer her up…by baking a Circus Peanut Key Lime Pah. I’m big this way.

What could be easier or more festive? You simply mix the yolks of three salmonella delivery devices with half a cup of Key Lime juice and a 14 oz can of sweetened constipated milk

Schplop it into Mr. Keebler

Now there’s something missing…ah yes!

Damn, I am an artiste!

Now into the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or so…

Huh, interesting. I was sort of hoping for some meltage action from the peanuts, much like marshmallows do when set atop of sweet potatoes. I guess the extra chemical goodness in the Circus Peanuts makes them go more the meringue route…

You know, the flavor combination actually works (well, it did for Daughter and moi; my Bride was somewhat less enthused), although the Peanuts were a tad difficult to eat as they were sort of crusty on the outside and a little chewy in the middle; the banana-esque flavor of the Peanut pairs nicely with the tart lime.

Daughter suggested that next time we pulverize the Peanuts in the food processor and mix the bits in with the pah filling; I like her thinking.

    That’s funny. It would have been funnier if you’d cooked in on the WSM 🙂

    OH MY GOD!!! CIRCUS PEANUT PIE! It’s like the food of the Gods. Well, if the God’s weren’t diabetic and were like, I don’t know, five years old?

    Who knew they wouldn’t melt? I didn’t and I’m a Circus Peanut aficinado.

    I really was hoping for a gooey melted top 🙁

    I think the Circus Peanuts would go pretty awesome on a Koolaid pie.

    And now that I’ve had some time to think about it, I think a smoked pecan pie would be pretty awesome … Hmm.

    That’s just…EVIL. Circus peanuts?! Ecch. What did that Key Lime pie ever do to you to deserve this? 😛

  10. Kate P says:

    What a fascinating idea! Maybe if you sliced them in half so they weren’t as thick, the circus peanuts would cook up differently.

    Someone had to have the impule to crack open an oyster see what that thing in the middle tastes like. I suppose someone had to do this, too. Sure glad it was someone else in this case. 🙂

    I salute you both.

    Impulse, not impule

    major dad, tell me that you’ve never eaten an MRE while thinking, “God, what wouldn’t I give for a homemade key lime/Circus Peanuts pie right now…..”

  15. Teresa says:

    I know Laura will love it. OTOH I think I’ll give it a pass. More for her anyway. LOL.

  16. Ave says:

    It looks perfect for a pie-throwing contest.

  17. major dad says:

    I’ve eaten far more MREs than I can count and I had a lot of thoughts but I don’t think circus peanut pie was ever one of them…vienna sausages, that’s a different matter.
