Cook Full Throttle or Go Home!

While I was at Atlanta last week I met several nice folks. Chris Lopez from Coca Cola brought over some of the executives from the Coca Cola Company in Atlanta to get a feel for the races. He brought them in the kitchen on Friday to show them the unique situation we have at the track. It is fun and interesting for people to see the world of food inside the world or racing. We discussed the BBQ sauce that I made with Citrus Full Throttle.

When they left, I started thinking about the different Full Throttle flavors. and how versatile they really are. I was thinking that the orange one would be great in a raspberry pie. I thought that the liquid would thicken a little to make it very moist, but at the same time the raspberries would give the pie structure. The orange would be a great citrus flavor, and the sweetness of the Full Throttle would complement by offsetting the tartness of the raspberries. I was sold on the idea, and I knew how the crew would love to have a piece of warm pie with ice cream. I went back to the hotel that night and wrote the recipe that I am going to share with you. Many times when I create a dish, I may have to alter it a little, but this one was a hit the first time out. I have to tell you that this is the best raspberry pie that I have ever tasted.

This is a very simple recipe and can be made in no time. Most people don't make pie crust anymore, and really don't have the time for the mess. It is fine to buy a pre-made pie crust. If you do make your own pie crust, try removing ½ cup of the flour from your recipe and replace it with ½ cup of ground pecans for an added touch to this pie.
