In the mood for baking and chocolate? I was recently; and here is something that fits both those desires perfectly. This recipe has been in our family so long I have forgotten where the original came from. It can be made with a store bought pie crust but this time I was really in the mood for baking and made mine from scratch. It has been awhile since I did this and I forgot how fun it can be plus how nice it is knowing exactly what is in the crust you are eating and being able to pronounce all the ingredients ( which isn’t very many).
I will start with the pie crust.
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2t flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 lg eggs
- 2t vanilla extract
- 1 cube butter, melted
- 1 unbaked 9 inch pie shell
Mix cocoa, flour, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add eggs, vanilla and butter.
Dare I say it is as “easy as pie”, and sure to impress.
May your chocolate dreams come true.
