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.
Mix well. Pour into the pie shell.
Bake at 350º about 25 minutes.
It is delicious warm, on its own or with ice cream.
After trying it, you will come to realize why our father nicknamed it “good-bye” pie…
Dare I say it is as “easy as pie”, and sure to impress.
May your chocolate dreams come true.
