I thought I'd post this in time for the holiday. I love Pumpkin pie, unfortunately I'm very allergic to pecans, and walnuts. This is a wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving or Christmas dessert table, and it has no nuts in it.
(If you are allergic to pecan and walnuts- tell me. I'd like to hear your story ;)
This is a snap to make, and if you are like me- there is always butter, eggs, sugar and chocolate in the house, and I buy the cheap pie crusts 12 at a time at the grocery store and put them in the freezer. I just never know when I'll need to make a pie- especially THIS one! :)
CHOCOLATE CHESS PIE
(Angus barn is famous for this pie here in NC)
1 unbaked pie crust (NOT a deep dish pie crust)
1 stick of butter (real butter is much better)
2 squares of Bakers Chocolate- semi sweet (2 to 4 oz of semi-sweet choc. chips work just as well!)
1 C of white sugar
2 eggs- beaten
1 Tsp of vanilla
dash of salt (the salt is important, it really does season the chocolate)
Melt the butter and chocolate (in the microwave, bowl with a lid- 2 to 3 minutes at 60% power works great)
In another bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla. Add in the melted chocolate and butter- mix well.
Pour the mixture into the pie shell, bake for 30-35 minutes at 350 degrees.
Let the pie cool before cutting it...cool whip on it is great. It is VERY rich- good with coffee- and don't eat too much of it :)
I will be serving this on Thanksgiving- I'd love to make something from your kitchen...so pass along a side dish or dessert idea :)
