Ingredients

Pastry Crust:

1 all-purpose flour

1/2 cup solid shortening (recommended: Crisco)

1/4 cup cold water

Pinch salt

Chocolate Filling:

1 1/2 sticks of butter

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

5 egg yolks

1/2 teaspoon peppermint flavoring

3 squares baking chocolate, melted and cooled

5 stiffly beaten egg whites

Cream cheese filling:

1/3 cup sifted powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

1 cup heavy whipped cream

Raspberry Filling: (you can substitute 1 cup of seedless raspberry jam):

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

1 cup frozen raspberries

1/2 tablespoon cornstarch

Directions

  1. Crust:
  2. Cut shortening into salt and flour until mixture is pea-sized pieces. Add cold water slowly until mixture forms a ball. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.
  4. Roll out on a floured board. Put in pie pan. Prick crust on bottom of pan with a fork. Bake for 8 to10 minutes until light brown. Cool.
  5. Chocolate Filling:
  6. In the bowl of a mixer, combine the butter and powdered sugar and beat together until fluffy. Add the egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating after each addition. Add the peppermint and melted chocolate and mix until combined.
  7. Beat the egg whites in a separate mixer until they hold stiff peaks. Gently fold the whites into the butter mixture.
  8. Cream Cheese Filling:
  9. Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla and cream cheese. Fold in whipped cream until smooth.
  10. Raspberry Filling
  11. Cook until raspberries are partially cooked and run through a cheesecloth or sieve to get the seeds out. Return to heat and add sugar and cornstarch. Boil over medium heat. Spread 1/2 of the raspberry filling into baked pie shell gently. Spread 1/2 of the chocolate filling over that and chill. Spread 1/2 the cream cheese filling over the chocolate filling. Repeat the layers.
