    Sally (S'mores Pie) by 3 pieces from 3 pies


    Um.. ok .. So the smores pies is complicated. I took parts of 3 different pie recipes and slapped them all together (and called them Sally). General concept is graham cracker crust, chocolate (Hershey's bars of course) silk filling, marshmallow meringue topping. Two things to note,
    - hot marshmallow = napalm = hurty pinky
    - broiling them makes for a nice variable marshmallow done-ness just like at a campfire.
