Sweet Condensed Milk Pie With Orange Rind, Chocolate Chips And Sultanas.

I think I may have developed a sweet tooth lately and going ape on sweets. Read an article the other day in a dessert magazine and was inspired to make the following pie:

You will need:
Serves 16
-  1 ready made, frozen, rectangular normal pastry for pies, thawed.
-  2 cans of sweet condensed milk.

-  6 egg yolks slightly beaten.
-  Rind from 3 oranges.

-  2 shots of Grand Marnier yellow ribbon.
-  1 tsp. vanilla extract.
-  ½ cup of chocolate chips.
-  ½ cup of sultanas.
-  Preheat your oven to 180 degrees C.
-  Cut two large enough pieces of oven proof paper.
-  Lay one on your working surface.
-  Lay your pastry on it then cover with second piece of oven proof paper.
-  This way you can easily move it around, and do whatever you want to it.
-  Make a round pie at least 26 cm in diameter.
-  Set in the pie mold with removable bottom, making sure the sides are covered.
-  Using your scissors cut around the mold leaving about 3 cm excess.
-  Take off the upper paper.

-  Make holes with a fork in the pie bottom and sides to prevent the pastry from rising.

-  Bake for 10 minutes.
-  Take out from oven.
For the filling:
-  Pour both cans of sweet condensed milk into a bowl.
-  Add ¾ of the orange rind, vanilla, Grand Marnier, and the slightly beaten eggs.
Making of the Pie:
-  Pour mixture into the partially baked crust.
-  Sprinkle the orange rind, chocolate chips and the sultanas on the surface.
-  Bake for a further 40 minutes at the same temperature of 180 degrees C.
-  Take out from oven and let cool.

Serve and Enjoy.
