We all like to try new recipes, and I’m certainly no exception. Although I favor savory cooking versus baking and desserts, a good meal deserves a sweet finish – something that will make your guests close their eyes and say “ahhh” with each bite. I attempted a new recipe for a layered mocha pie at one of the first dinner parties we held for another Navy couple. Little did I know that our guest had worked as a pastry chef prior to joining the Navy! I had forgotten to thoroughly grease the pie plate and couldn’t get slices of the pie out of it for serving. Using a spatula, I eventually served a crumbled chocolate crust and the chocolate mousse/coffee flavored whipped cream in one big SPLAT! Nevertheless, the Coffee Toffee Pie was delicious.
