Boston cream pie is a tried and true dessert rooted in the hearts of many Massachusetts natives. This recipe puts a twist on the dessert by adding a layer of amaretto pastry cream to the mix.Recipe courtesy of Bake from Scratch
When the Parker House opened, chocolate was mainly consumed at home as a beverage or in puddings. Since its invention, the Boston cream pie has become one of the most popular desserts in America and is served in thousands of establishments. Our recipe for Boston cream pie became so popular that in 1958, it even became a Betty Crocker boxed mix.It was originally referred to as Washington Pie at the hotel and was made in pie tins. We built a replica of the hotel out of Boston Crème Pie for the 150th anniversary year, which made the Worlds' Largest list, and served it all day to over 10,000 Bostonians and tourists at Quincy Market Place. The pie is still produced on the same marble pastry table that would have been used by Ho Chi Minh in 1911 when he was a pastry chef here at the Omni Parker House.We serve over 20,000 per year from the Omni Parker House Bakery, made fresh everyday. The recipe is in our history book, which guests can receive at the hotel upon request.See all pie recipes.Click here to see The Great American Pie Extravaganza.
