Chocolate Pie

PIN IT... TO remember it!

added by Joan Penney

The best chocolate pie!! There is a rich butter taste and a slight crunch to the top! **This recipe does not use milk**

Cook time: 35 Min  Prep time: 15 Min  Serves: 6-8

Ingredients

1 stick butter

2 oz baking chocolate, semi-sweet

2 eggs

1 c sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pie crust shell (regular) not deep dish

SHORTBREAD CRUST

1 c all purpose flour

1/4 c powdered sugar

1/2 tsp salt

4 oz butter, softened

Directions

1. Melt butter and chocolate squares in saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

2. Beat eggs with sugar and vanilla in a medium mixing bowl; add chocolate mixture and mix well.

3. Pour in pie shell or follow directions for shortbread crust.

4. Shortbread crust Combine flour, sugar and salt in a medium size bowl. Add butter and using large fork or hands work butter in flour mixture until dough comes together as a ball. Press dough into a tart pan. Fill with chocolate filling. Bake at 350 for 30-35 min.

5. Using either type crust (regular or shortbread) bake at 350 for 30-35 min. ***This chocolate pie does have a “rugged” look because of the slightly crunchy top. Yes, the pie may crack while cooling. Yes, it is a bit hard to tell when the pie is done; and yes, a toothpick will still come out with chocolate on it after 30 -35 min baking time but the pie solidifies while cooling. It does look a little “jiggly” upon taking it out of the oven. Hope this helps with any questions and or concerns.
