What about all of those people out there that love chocolate but can't eat it? I have a recipe for you. I have baked this for my brother for years. It's like a chocolate pie but you use carob. Carob looks like chocolate but it isn't. You can buy it at Krogers or any health food shop.
Put milk, butter, in an iron skillet and melt and add dry ingredients. Stir until it thickens, then add vanilla. Pour into a prepared pie shell.
It makes a wonderful non- chocolate chocolate pie.

I have a family member who cannot eat chocolate. He has requested that I make a Carob pie for him for the holidays. Does anyone know how to substitute carob powder for cocoa in order to make a chocolate (carob) pie? I'd appreciate any recipe help that you can give me.

Here are a few recipes I found online: http://www.recipegoldmine.com/piecream/piecream14.html , http://www.ivu.org/recipes/holiday/carob-j.html , http://www.ivu.org/hlsc/recipes/carob-pudding.html. Actually, if you key in "carob pudding" you can find lots of recipes...most using dates and cashews in the recipe. The following site suggests that you substitute cocoa with one and a half to two parts carob: http://www.mothernature.com/Library/Ency/Index.cfm/Id/1689004 I hope these sites help. God bless you, Connie, what a wonderful gift you are to your family member. (11/28/2005)
