Netflix has already revolutionized the way we watch TV, with a slew of hit original shows including their latest sensation, Stranger Things. For those who just can't get enough of Stranger Things, the streaming service has released a new video that shows fans how to make an incredible Demogorgon Pie, in honor of the upcoming Halloween holiday. If you want your Halloween party to stand out from the rest this year, you simply have to watch this brief video below.
The Netflix YouTube released this two and a half minute video that shows you every step of how to create this intricate pie that looks so cool you may not even want to eat it. The recipe was created by Ashley Holt, and when it's all said and done the pie bears an amazing resemblance to the Demogorgon when the monster opens its "mouth," so to speak. The video even begins with a shot of the Demogorgon towards the end of the sci-fi series, as it squares off with the doomed Eleven.
To make this pie, you'll need (3) boxes refrigerated pie crust, 1 (16oz) bag sliced almonds, 1 (15oz) can pumpkin puree, 1 (21 oz) can cherry pie filling, 1/2 (15 oz) can sweetened condensed milk, 3 eggs, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1/2 cup blackberry puree and 1 (4 oz) bag slivered almonds. You'll begin by preheating the oven to 425 degrees, and then you'll unroll one pie crust, place in pie plate and crimp edges. Place in freezer until ready to fill. In a medium bowl combine pumpkin puree, cherry pie filling, sweetened condensed milk, 2 eggs and pumpkin pie spice and mix until combined.
Remove pie plate from freezer and fill with pumpkin/cherry mixture. Gently pour blackberry puree over the pumpkin/cherry mixture and lightly swirl in with a toothpick. Brush the unbaked crust with an egg wash (1 egg + 1 tablespoon water) and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven heat to 350 and continue to bake pie for another 35 - 40 minutes. The pie should be set around the edges and lightly jiggle in the center. Remove pie from the oven and let cool. Once cool enough, reference a photo of the Demogorgon and start placing the slivered almonds in their appropriate spot inside of the pie - this will be the inside of the Demogorgons mouth.
There is yet another process to make the Demogorgon petals, which starts with preheating the oven to 375. Unroll the remaining pie crust (5) and cut out a large petal design. Place individual petals on a silicone lined sheet tray. Lightly brush petals with egg wash and gently shingle the sliced almonds all the way up - Make sure and leave some space without almonds around the bottom of the petal so it can squeeze down beside the pie. Once you get all of your almonds on, bake until golden. Take extra care to not over bake. Place baked pie in large shallow bowl. Gently place the 5 petals around the pie, the bottoms of the petals tucked down beside the pie. Very carefully tie it all together with a piece of bakers twine. Once you're ready to serve, carefully cut into the beast.
