Recipe for a Delicious Lone Star Amaretto Pie

Pies just seem to give a special ending to a fine meal.  I have been lucky enough to have lived in five of these great United States and to have visited many others.  One thing is a fact wherever you go, pie is a feature from the mom and pop diners to the big chains and fancy restaurants.  Here we offer a Texas pie recipe.  Lone Star Amaretto Pie is perfect for those wanting a spirited pie as it has both Grand Marnier and Amaretto among its ingredient list.

LONE STAR AMARETTO PIE

1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp Grand Marnier
1 tbsp amaretto
2 tbsps cream do cacao
1 9-inch graham cracker crust (recipe below)

To prepare crust:

Place 1 package of graham crackers (from a 1 pound box) in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin to make crumbs. You should have a generous 1 1/2 cups of crumbs. Place the crumbs in a bowl and add 4 tablespoons of sugar, a dash of cinnamon, and 1 stick of butter or margarine that has been melted. Butter the inside of a 9-inch pie plate. Press an even layer of the crumb mixture over the bottom and up sides of plate. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven. Crust should be very lightly tinged brown. Allow to cool before adding the pie filling.

To make pie filling:

In a large bowl, blend the whipped cream with the condensed milk, Grand Marnier, amaretto, and cream de cacao. When well blended, pour into the cooled pie shell. Freeze for 4 hours.

Enjoy!
