Triple Chocolate Pie
2 cups chocolate wafer cookie crumbs
1/2 cup toasted chopped pecans
1/2 cup butter, melted
2 tablespoons dark rum
2 tablespoons vanilla
3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
4 large eggs
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup sugar
6 ounces white chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the crust: mix cookie crumbs, pecans and butter in a bowl. When mixed well, press mixture into a 10 inch springform pan. Bake for 10 minutes and cool before adding filling.
For filling: pour rum and vanilla over gelatin in a small bowl and set aside. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Keep it liquid by setting it aside with the lid in place.
Separate the eggs. Using a wire whisk, stir the yolks, cream and milk in a sauce pan over low heat until the mixture thickens and just begins to bubble.
If the mixture makes a light layer on the back of a spatula, immediately remove from heat. Stir in the melted chocolate and softened gelatin. Set aside.
In another bowl, whip the remaining egg whites until stiff peaks form. Sprinkle in the salt and sugar. Gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate and cream mixture. Spoon this carefully into the crust. Chill over night.
To serve the pie, loosen the edges of the filling with a sharp knife, carefully gliding it along the sides of the pan.
Melt the white chocolate and drizzle over each piece.
