Saturday, we were painting the office and bathroom. Jeffrey's mother came to help, my mother was there to help. We snacked on pimento and cheese mid morning then went downtown and had lunch. After,we made a quick jaunt through town, showing his mother the sights. It was a gorgeous day, mild and sunny.
Just when I thought things couldn't get any better:
That would be Calypso Pie. It is scrumptious.
Jeffrey's mother generously shared the recipe:
Layer of Oreos (20)
Layer of Vanilla Ice Cream (1/2 Gallon)
Chocolate Sauce (Recipe Below)
Cool Whip (8oz)
One Stick Butter or Margarine
Three Squares Semi-Sweet Chocolate
2/3 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup of Evaporated Milk
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla
Crush or break Oreos into a 9x13 pan. Put softened Ice Cream over cookies. Put in freezer to harden.
Put all Chocolate Sauce ingredients in a double boiler and cook for about 4 minutes. Let cool before pouring over ice cream. Put back into freezer so the chocolate sauce will harden. Top with Cool Whip and Plain M & M's. Return to freezer, and store in the freezer, when you're not eating it straight from the pan with a spoon.
