  • Preheat grill to medium heat. Roll pie crusts on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out 16 circles. (Or cut out other shapes like squares or triangles.) Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill.

  • Reduce temperature of grill to low. Spray grill grates with no stick cooking spray. Grill pie shapes about 2 1/2 minutes per side or until they begin to harden and form grill marks. Let cool then match up into pairs for sandwiches.

  • Meanwhile, beat 1 cup of the heavy cream with confectioners’ sugar and vanilla in large bowl until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

  • Microwave chocolate chips in medium microwavable bowl on HIGH at 15-second intervals until melted, stirring in between cook time. Set aside to cool slightly. Beat remaining 1/2 cup heavy cream and orange extract in medium bowl until soft peaks form. Fold into melted chocolate. Immediately pour into pastry bag fitted with a plain tip. Pipe about 2 tablespoons of chocolate ganache onto one side of each pair of pie crusts.

  • Using another pastry bag, pipe a dollop of whipped cream onto ganache. Top with a pie crust to make a sandwich that resembles a s'more. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cooking tip

Variation: Try flavoring the chocolate ganache with other extracts such as McCormick® Raspberry Extract or McCormick® Pure Peppermint Extract. Or use McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract in both the whipped cream and the ganache.
