So I'm not a "pie" person but as you know, I'm a chocoholic. This recipe was a quick fix to a very long week and it was met with grins from two sweet little girls. In fact, the next night I was asked to make another one but declined out of sheer exhaustion. Anyway, with some weekend rest the pie is back on our minds and probably on my hips!
2 squares (2-ounces) semisweet chocolate (I just used chips)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and add the sugar, then temper the eggs by adding a little hot liquid to the beaten eggs then add eggs back into sugar mixture; beat well. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 25 minutes or until just set. Makes a thin pie so it's really more like a tart. I crimped the pie crust down a bit to prevent burning.
Serve warm or cold, with ice cream or whipped cream. Then take a long walk!
