Mississippi Mud Pie




Ready in 30 minutes plus chilling

Serves 10

12 ginger nut biscuits/ginger snap cookies
56g/2 oz low fat margarine
4 eggs*
568ml/1pt skimmed milk
57g/2 oz cocoa
2 level tbsp cornflour
6 level tbsp caster sugar
2 x 11g sachets gelatine
2 tsp vanilla extract
fresh berries, to garnish
icing sugar/powdered sugar, to dust

1. Put the biscuits/cookies in a food processor and blend to form crumbs. Melt the margarine, add the biscuit/cookie crumbs and mix. Spoon into an 18cm/7 inch lined cake tin, press down and chill.
2. Separate the eggs and beat the yolks. Place most of the milk in a pan, whisk in the egg yolks and heat gently for 3-4 minutes until warm. Whisk the remaining milk with the cocoa powder and cornflour and add to the hot milk along with the sugar. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously, until thick and smooth. Remove from the heat.
3. Dissolve the gelatine in 6 tablespoons of hot water, add to the milk with the vanilla extract, mix well and set aside to cool.
4. Using an electric whisk, beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold into the cooled milk mixture with a metal spoon. Pour over the base and leave to set overnight in the fridge.
5. Serve cut into wedges, garnished with berries and dusted with icing/powdered sugar.
