White Chocolate Mini Pies


Ok..Ok. So I have renamed myself “Leslie the Loser”. Yep, Leslie the Loser is my new name.

How lame am I? Seriously!? I have had ZERO motivation to blog or even really turn on my computer for that matter. I think some little anti blogger elf came in my room in the middle of the night and stole my blogging mojo. Little bastard. I have so many yummy recipes to share with you but have been too lazy to type them up. I have a pile of scrap papers with recipes scribbled on them that I need to type up anyway..so why not just blog about them? Cause I am a Loser..remember? A lazy looser at that! Wow, I am down on myself tonight aren’t I? I am sure some of you have abandoned me. And I am sure you feel like I have abandoned you. I am sorry, I really am. I do enjoy sharing my food and I enjoy reading all of my favorite blogs too, but just not lately. Forgive me? I will try to be a better blogger.
Can I make it up to you with this heavenly little dessert? Please tell me I can. Bribes are good.
This is another one of my Philly Cream Cheese recipes. With another cheesy video to go along with it. It’s funny at the end..remember along with being big fat looser, I am also a total dork.(the dorkness starts at about 6:49)
I am not sure to call these mini pies or tarts. But regardless, they are sooooooo good. And soooooo easy to make. Oh, and they are pretty as well. Just make sure you have plenty of people around to eat them up or you might eat 3 of them yourself. Trust me on this one. (cough-cough).

WHITE CHOCOLATE MINI PIES
6 pre-made mini graham cracker crusts
1 egg white, beaten
1 cup heavy cream
4 oz cream cheese, mixed until smooth
4 oz White Chocolate, chopped
1 tsp vanilla
6 Tbsp Nutella
Fresh Berries for garnish

Preheat oven to 375
Brush the graham cracker crusts with beaten egg white and bake for 5 minutes. Remove the
from oven and allow them to cool completely.
In a small saucepan, bring about 1 inch of water to a boil. Make a double boiler by placing a bowl on top on the saucepan with the boiling water so it fits snuggle over the top without touching the water.
Put the white chocolate in the bowl, and stir until completely melted. set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the cream, sugar with an electric mixer and vanilla until it starts to thicken.
Add the softened cream cheese in 3 parts, mixing well in-between each addition.
Whip to a whip creamed consistency.
Fold in the melted chocolate.
Cover and place the chocolate, cream cheese mixture in the fridge for about one hour.
Place one tablespoon of the Nutella in each of the tarts.
Place the chocolate mixture in a zip lock bag, snip off the edge and pipe it into the mini pie shells.
Garnish with fresh berries.
Refrigerate until ready for serving.

    We all lose our blogging mojo sometimes. These little mini pies look excellent! Forget dinner, I just want these… RIGHT NOW!

  2. 2

    Those look PERFECT! We all need break from blogging when it feel like a chore instead of a fun hobby. I think I'm at that point. I don't even feel like cooking! Glad to "see" you back. :)

    I think everyone looses their blogging mojo from time to time. I'm battling a case of that myself right now.

    Oh those mini pies look SO good! You can't go wrong with cream cheese and Nutella… I have everything but the premade graham cracker crusts and the Nutella. (I know, what's a house without a jar of Nutella?!) However I am going shopping tomorrow. Guess what's being added to the list? ;-)

    LOL The kind of household that loves eating Nutella right out of the jar of course! The stores in my area just started selling the bigger jars (finally!) so maybe we can make it last longer now. (Yeah. Right. haha)

    Hey, sometimes it's good to be out in the world instead of in front of a computer. I don't think anyone would begrudge you that :) Mojo generally comes back eventually.

    The little pies look so delicious! I am easily swayed by yumminess :D

    Uhhh I lost my blogging mojo like two years ago and had to fight to get it back… and here and there I just don't feel up to it! You’re human! And that is good… because with your gorgeousness and amazing recipes… I have to admitt I was starting to covince myself you were alien (totally just to make myself feel better ;)) but ya, I confess. I did. I'm sorry! Yay for the tarts/pies they are too cute! Mmmmmm nutella!!

    pigpigscorner says:

    Hand me a dozen of those and you will be forgiven!

  24. 24

    You are down on yourself…but that looks good. How can you go wrong with anything that mixes berries and Graham crackers?

  25. 25

    I definitely know about losing the blog mojo. If it becomes a chore than it isn't worth the time, right? You always do gorgeous work on your desserts so I always look forward to your posts, whenever you get to them. These are fantastic.

  26. 26

    Pies look delicious!
    Don't beat yourself up about blogging though-I haven't blogged much lately either. I don't even feel like cooking, so you've got me beat! Have a great day Leslie.

    Hi! First I have to say that i LOVE your blog. Your recipes are awesome. Second I need to ask you if I can borrow your recipes!! I have a food blog also, called The Stay At Home Mommy Blog, and would love to be able to post some of your recipes for others to try. My blog is non profit, as I do it because I love to cook, and I promise to ALWAYS let my readers know where their recipes are coming from. Please let me know as I am anxious to post your southwest eggrolls. I tried them and they are TO DIE FOR! Thanks for all you've done with your blog. ~Chelsey

    they look great well said Melody

    You say that like eating 3 is a bad thing. Don't worry about the MIA stuff. As far as blogging goes I say if it's fun do it, if it's not, don't. (unless of course it's making you lots of money then you better keep doing it!)

  35. 35

    Those pies look amazing and I know how you feel! Sometimes all you need is just a little break. Take your time, we'll be here when you find that mojo, which is probably hanging out with mine enjoying a nice latte or something :)
