Ah, chocolate fudge pie...:sigh: It's rich, chocolatey deliciousness, and Jessie inevitably asks for the recipe around this time of year so I thought I would go ahead and post and share (that, and Jori asked for it too ;oP).
This is a pie whose recipe doesn't call for a crust. However, I like crust with my pie, so I'll use either a regular pie crust or a graham cracker crust (and as I was feeling lazy today, graham it was).
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 squares (1 ounce each) unsweetened chocolate
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1/4 cup flour
- pinch salt
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
Preparation:Directions for Chocolate Pie
Melt butter and chocolate in double boiler; beat in sugar. Fold in flour and salt. Add vanilla. Beat eggs; fold into chocolate mixture with pecans. Turn into a greased 9-inch pie plate. Bake at 350° for 20 to 30 minutes. Center of the chocolate pie should still be moist when done.
This pie is incredibly fudgy and is wonderful when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. :o)
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
