Silky Irish Cream Pie! Oh this is so good! This is a lovely dessert to make for St Patrick's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or indeed any time of the year!

Here I made a silky luxurious Irish Cream Pie, using a variety of ingredients to make any chocolate pie lover smile!
I made a chocolate pastry base, lined it with white chocolate and then filled it with the most luxurious, creamy filling, infused with Irish Cream and laced throughout with little milk chocolate bits.

All in all, it is a most wonderful dessert, with different textures and taste sensations, and contrasts of colors.

Prep Time

10 minutes for pastry & 10 minutes for filling

Cook Time

20 - 25 minutes for pastry

Yield

8 servings

You will need

a flan/quiche dish measuring 23 cm / 9-inch diameter.

Ingredients

The Base


1/2 stick (2.5 oz) or 75g butter at fridge temperature, cut into small cubes.
1 cup or 130 g Plain / All purpose flour (sieved)
5 Tablespoons sieved cocoa powder
pinch of salt
2-4 tablespoons cold water
2 tablespoons sugar.
*** If you don't want to make the base, you can buy a ready cooked 9-inch pie crust, try and get a chocolate one if you can. It makes all the difference!

The Filling


8 oz or 225 g Cream Cheese, room temperature
7 fl oz or 200 ml Whipping Cream
4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
2 oz or 60 g Chopped Milk Chocolate
3 1/2 oz or 100 g Melted White Chocolate
4 Tablespoons Baileys / Irish Cream

Instructions

The Pastry


1. Put the oven on to 180C, 375F, Gas 5

Please note I have lowered the cook time to get this pastry case as crisp as a cookie without burning it

2. Make your shortcrust pastry. Here are our instructions to make your own pastry case. You need to add the cocoa powder and sugar to the mix.

3. Grease your flan dish & make sure you grease up the sides too.

4. Roll out the pastry into the shape of your flan dish. Make sure there is enough to reach up against the sides of your dish. I just place the dish over the pastry to see if I've rolled enough.

5. Use your rolling pin to transfer the pastry to the dish.

6. Prick holes with a fork all over the pastry and place a piece of parchment and some weights on top. I used some dried pasta as weights. This will stop the pastry from forming bubbles when you cook it. This method is called baking blind and you can read more about it here.

7. Place in the oven for 10 minutes, then remove the weights and return to the oven to cook for a further 15 minutes.

8. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

9. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan with boiling water. Alternatively, you can melt it in a bowl in the microwave at 20-second intervals until all melted.

10. Then pour HALF of the melted white chocolate on to the base of the cooked pastry case. This will stop the pastry becoming soft or soggy later, and also adds an extra touch of flavor. Allow to chill in the fridge or freezer whilst you make the filling.
