I made Schadenfreude Pie this morning after I did my training run (I'm doing fairly poorly on the running front - my hip keeps trying to pop or something on the runs, so I'm back to doing slow build-up style runs). We went out to celebrate a friend's birthday with pie in tow. The oft-repeated question was, "What flavor is the pie?" "Schadenfreude." "Sweet!"
And sweet it was.
My recipe modifications were pretty small. The recipe calls for a small amount of semisweet chocolate (a half cup), to which I added a small amount of 99% dark Lindt chocolate. The chocolate is so overwhelmed by the sugar and molasses that I might make it in the future with an entire bar of the 99% dark or maybe Scharfenberger. I also added about a half teaspoon of cloves in addition to the cinnamon. I found an 'two extra servings' graham cracker pie crust, and used all of the filling. It took about 55 minutes to bake all told and didn't look quite as done in the middle as I would have liked. I think I might try this again with the smaller individual-sized pie crusts. It will probably cut the cooking time down to about 20 minutes.
Delicious, and probably even better with vanilla ice cream (or some milk).
