Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

Sorry if I seem to be hogging your message board – I know I posted a few days ago – but I just want to deliver the happy news that there is, indeed, a recipe for avocado pie. In fact, there are multiple recipes, and they don’t require baking. They do generally require two avocados (or one really big avocado), a graham cracker crust, lemon juice and some kind of thickener.

This recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk. This other one is fancier, as it involves cream cheese and pecans. I plan to try my hand at the simpler avocado pie recipe this evening.

On the subject of avocado fritters, I haven’t found any for avocado and cheese, although I have found a couple for avocado and crab fritters. But those are a little more complicated.

By the way, I have learned that a plain old slice of avocado tastes delicious when topped with sour cream and a sprinkling of brown sugar.

Snark on,

I'm not so sure about graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar along with avocados, but I'm not very sweet.
