Neapolitan Malt Mousse Pie

Sweet mother of Abraham this is good pie! We are big malt fans in our house and when we visit a diner or old-fashioned lunch counter we get a malt shake, extra malt please. I came across Laura’s layered pie and bookmarked it right away. I love layered desserts. This pie came out great after I made a big boo-boo and had to start over again.

I over-whipped the cream and made butter: a separated glob of vanilla, malted goo. So then I was out of cream, had everything out, and did not want to run to the store. Thank goodness I found Cool Whip in my fridge and used it in place of the cream and sugar. I am definitely going to make this again (with real cream and sugar) and not leave the room while the cream is whipping. I would like to double it and put it in a 9×13 inch dish and take to my next potluck. I think it will be a hit, I may even double, triple, or quadruple the malt. The love is that bad.

By the way, who was Abraham’s mother?

    That looks fun and so cool. It's so hot here that the ice cream would have melted before I even got a picture of it!

    I just might have to make that for a potluck I am attending this sunday.

    RE: Mother of Abraham, the book of Genesis doesn't say. We know his father Terah and his two brothers, but Abraham's Mom doesn't get a mention 🙁

    Well I'm glad you messed up because this sounds delish. Cool whip to the rescue everytime.

    I love your blog and get so excited every time you post something new. I even have my parents checking out your recipes, and they never use the computer! My dad loves your mom's bracciol. So my family loves everything malt too, and I can't wait to try this! How did you get the top of the pie to look so beautiful!? Blessings!

    Jacci2715- Thanks for all your kind words! To make the top of the pie, I used a rubber spatula. I placed it on its side at the center of the pie and stared to turn the pie with my other hand while lifting the spatula up and down to make the waves all the while moving outwards as I turned it. It took a few tries before it came out pretty. If I botched it I would have covered it with more cool whip;-)

    oooh, how delightful! it's so pretty and perfect as far as i can tell. when i read "sweet mother of abraham," i thought to myself, "say, who was abraham's mother?" so i laughed when you posed the same question. 🙂

    Robin Sue, this looks so amazing! As a child I loved Neapolitan ice cream & savoring each flavor one by one, and look forward to trying this wonderful mousse pie. 😉

    Abraham's mother's name is not mentioned in the Torah.

    "The full story of…important events in Abraham's early life was only told by word of mouth, from generation to generation, until the details were final1y recorded by the Sages of the Talmud in various Midrashim."

    "His father's name, as you all know, was Terah, who was seventy years old when Abraham was born. Abraham's mother's name was Amathlaah."

    Hey, Robin Sue if you over whip your cream you should be able to pour in a little more cream and GENTLY (key word:))whip it in. Hope that helps for next time.

    I love layered desserts too. So pretty and so much easier to photograph.

    Duh, meant to also tell you that I've yet to try malt. I bought a bottle of carnation to try but haven't broken into it yet.
