    I was looking for something relatively guilt-free to make this weekend for dessert. This looks amazing!!! And I’m sure my SO wouldn’t mind helping with this one, because he’ll probably end up eating most of it anyways.

    By the way, I scoured the local grocery store for red lentils and came up short for your post a few days ago. Then, I found them at the international market! That’ll be up for next weekend’s soup!

    Ooo, yummy! I love chocolate cream pies and I bet the red pepper just steps it up a bit and surprises all who take a bite. 😀

    Wow this looks so good. I think I would leave out the red pepper too, can’t go wrong with the chocolate, cinnamon and cream combination!

    I have made this pie … THREE times now! (first was an experiment – and it turned out great so I made it for a some new parents and as the “welcome home from deployment” dessert for my husband, and it was perfect!) I had no idea I’d like a cream pie – from scratch makes all the difference!
