Just in time for your Hanukkah dessert comes this decadent, delectable Chocolate Chip Peanut Pie. Say the words slowly, and you’ll conjure up the idea that this is like a pecan pie, only with peanuts, and better.
Chocolate. Chip. Peanut. Pie.
It was born from the same new cookbook that I featured the other day, from which we were gifted the memorable Hot Gooey Caramel Pie .
Yes, “Something Sweet: Desserts, Baked Goods, and Treats for Every Occasion,” by Miriam Pascal, is that kind of book — you’ll bake from it multiple times, you’ll drool while you page through it, and it has recipes that appeal to those who keep kosher and those who don’t. That’s pretty much everyone.
Miriam is not shy (nor should she be) about the charms of this pie: “Pecan pie is great, but why should the pecans have all the fun? If you’re like me and always enjoy peanuts, this is the dessert for you! While first making this dessert, and every time I’ve made it since, I couldn’t help but think, ‘This recipe is genius.’ I know it sounds a bit conceited, but when you make this, I know you’ll feel the same way.”
Convinced? Hanukkah begins Sun., Dec. 12 this year, and continues until Dec. 20.
Let’s turn on the oven and celebrate the sweetness of the season.
If you like the idea of this pie, don’t miss her Hot Gooey Caramel Pie , which I featured earlier. I had suggested it as your second pie for Thanksgiving. It can be part of any pie arsenal you need in fall and winter!
Disclosure: The publisher sent a copy of the book for review.
