If you like apple pie, then you’re going to love mango pie! Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and this year’s dessert table is getting a brand new look. Don’t worry, we’re not advising you to do anything drastic—you can still bring pumpkin and pecan pies to the festivities as we don’t want your guests to miss out—but instead of baking the same ole apple pie for the twenty-ninth year in a row, this time we’re going to surprise everyone with something special. Spiced with warm fall flavors, and topped with a golden lattice crust—with this post we declare that pie season has officially begun!

Spring is in full bloom here in Eagle Rock. It’s currently 72 degrees outside, our windows are open, the birds are singing… and a noisy gas-powered weed trimmer just started roaring from across the hill. Aside from the occasional noise distraction, it’s quiet where we live, and May is spectacular with patches of wildflowers popping up everywhere in deep shades of pinks, blues, and purples. To celebrate the season, today we’re sharing a Spring recipe that will make your taste buds blossom. If you’re searching for the perfect dish for Cinco de Mayo or Mother’s Day, or perhaps just a romantic evening for two, this savory spring galette is here to add a little more color and flavor to this vibrant time of year.

chocolate check mocha pie

What’s the saying? If at first you don’t succeed, pie pie again? That is exactly what happened to us this past week with this deliciously dramatic dessert, because our first two attempts were far from pie-fect. We knew the filling had to be irresistibly creamy, and were determined to do as many tests as needed to achieve the perfect balance of chocolate and coffee. It was lucky test number three which nearly brought tears to our eyes as we tried this chocolatey checkered masterpiece. The texture was smooth and silky with three kinds of chocolate and a heaping spoonful of coffee, topped with a striking black and white courtly check lattice crust… let us introduce you to the chocolate check mocha pie!

let's bake some pie!

thin mints pie

thin mints pie

While the east coast is experiencing heavy snow storms and below-freezing temperatures, we are relaxing in our family room at ten o’clock in the evening, cooling down our house with the windows open, listening to the calming sounds of an owl hoo’ing in a nearby tree. It reached ninety degrees today here in Eagle Rock, California. Apparently Mother Nature had no interest in Spring this year, as she’s already in flip-flops and sunglasses, sipping passion coladas on a private beach in the south of France. How do we know that? We emailed to remind her that some of us enjoy all four seasons, but we got an automated out-of-the-office response to contact her partner, Flora. But since this is her busiest time of year, we were left on our own, trying to figure out ways to stay cool. It was much too hot for hiking today, so we pumped up the A/C, turned on some summer tunes, and consumed the clock, creating a cure that could cool our cores. For national pi day, we took our favorite girl scout cookie and turned it into a dreamy pie—ultra-rich and mint-chocolatey delicious. You can almost feel the chilly breeze as we introduce her to you: please meet the lusciously invigorating thin mints pie.
