Mmmmmmmmm... that sounds awesome Tweedtone. Thanks for posting it. Makes me wish I knew how to cook on something besides the BBQ.

Has anyone made the Mai Tai Pie in Taboo Table or any of the other desserts in the book?

This makes for a wonderfully yummy desert and is fun to make and share.

Having made a few of these I offer the following suggestions:

Add a bit of lime zest to the coolwhip. Or sprinkle some lime zest in the bottom of your pie shell before you add anything else.

DO NOT DOUBLE the recipe to make two pies. Make two batches, trust me on this one.

The darker the rum the better, there isn't much and it will get overwhelmed by the other flavors quickly. Do not use your best rums for this, but you knew that already.

Share and Enjoy.

I Like Pie!

I haven't made the one in Taboo Table yet, but am I dying to test it out.

This recipe sounds pretty good though.

I wonder if substituting almonds for the coconut in the crust would be good (bring that orgeat flavor of the Mai Tai in)? I have to bring something to my book club tomorrow; maybe I'll try making this today!

Crushed amaretti for crumb base?

I once did a Mai Tai cheesecake - rum and orange curacao for flavoring, lime zest for garnish and a crushed almond crust. It was fabulous.

The recipe in Taboo Table calls for 1 ounce fresh lime juice.

Well, my version is chillin' (and setting up, hopefully) in the fridge. We'll know the final results tomorrow.

Whew! I knew you couldn't have anything called "Mai Tai" without fresh lime!

Here's the results, kids...



I changed up the recipe a bit, partly for personal preference (can't stand Cool Whip), but also to incorporate a more Classic Mai Tai feel (downplaying the orange, addition of lime, almond, and hint of mint flavors). Here's my alterations:

Quote:
Mai Tai Pie (with changes by Haole’akamai)

1 ½ cups sliced almonds, crushed
¼ cup melted butter
In a ¼ cup container mix:
1Tb mint syrup*
2 Tb lime syrup*
Fill with orgeat**
Zest from one bearss lime, split into 2/3rd and 1/3rd
8 ounces cream cheese
12 oz can sweetened condensed milk
4 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice, mixed with 2Tb mint syrup* and 3Tb lime syrup*
2 tablespoons orange flavored liqueur***
1/4 cup dark rum****
1 pint heavy cream, whipped to very stiff peaks



Combine almonds, butter, ¼ cup of syrups, mixing well. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Add 2/3 of lime zest (set aside rest to garnish top of pie). Bake at 300 degrees F for 45 minutes, or until almonds are browned and toasted-looking. Let crust cool completely.


Beat cheese until fluffy. Add condensed milk and lime juice and beat until smooth. Add rum and liqueur. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into cooled pie crust and refrigerate 6 hours.


Garnish with lime zest.




I used:
*Sonoma Syrup Company's Lime and Mint syrups.
**Monin Orgeat
***Hiram Walker Orange Curacao
****TV Special Dark Rum

So how was it? Did it taste like a Mai Tai? Would you make it again?

That is a thing of beauty.

How did it taste with the almond crust?
