White Chocolate Shamrock Pie

Always love a good excuse to celebrate with PIE... And every year we choose a new pie recipe to feature. This year we chose totally homemade WHITE CHOCOLATE SHAMROCK PIE. 

For the Filling:
1/2 cup white sugar
4 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 cups cream or half & half
2 cups milk or water
6 egg yolks (yolks only)
2 cups white chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3 small drops almond flavoring
9 drops of green food coloring
oreo pie crust 

In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually add cream and milk. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir with a wire whisk 2-3 minutes more or until thickened. 

Remove from the heat. This next set is very important that it is done correctly, Stir 1-1/2 cups hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks; return to saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes more. Remove from the heat; stir in chips until melted. Stir in extracts and food coloring.  Pour into oreo pie crust and let chill for at least two hours. Garnish with whipped cream and oreo crumbs. Yield: 8 servings.
