Here it is - the final pie from my recent pie making blitz - Strawberry Grand Marnier Chiffon Pie!
This pie is one of the 160+ recipes featured in "The Spirited Baker", and it's deceptively easy to make.
The key to success here is to ensure that your mixer bowl and whisk are very clean, and that no egg yolk makes it in with the whites.
Any sort of grease or fat from the yolk will prevent your whites from whipping up properly, and you won't achieve the fluffy structure that you want for this pie.
This is a great pie for summer - not only to utilize the great fresh strawberries available, but also because it requires NO BAKING!
This recipe comes from my first cookbook, The Spirited Baker. It’s FULL of fun, tasty recipes using spirits and liqueurs for flavour – you should check it out:
Combining liqueurs with more traditional baking ingredients can yield spectacular results.Try Mango Mojito Upside Down Cake, Candy Apple Flan, Jalapeno Beer Peanut Brittle, Lynchburg Lemonade Cupcakes, Pina Colada Rum Cake, Strawberry Daiquiri Chiffon Pie, and so much more.
To further add to your creative possibilities, the first chapter teaches how to infuse spirits to make both basic and cream liqueurs, as well as home made flavor extracts! This book contains over 160 easy to make recipes, with variation suggestions to help create hundreds more! Order your hard copy here on my website, through Amazon, or through any major bookseller.
