Simply Southern Chocolate Pie

This is the perfect accompaniment to peppermint ice cream and the perfect ending to a festive holiday meal. And as homemade pies go, it’s not even that hard to make because you use a store-bought crust. (And spare me the Sandra-Lee-hatred as I am the captain of that club: we’ll get a homemade crust recipe up soon for you diehard traditionalists.)

So put on that apron and make your Grandma proud. Nothing says “Southern” and “special” like this old-school dessert combo.

1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate squares
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 unbaked pie shell

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix sugar, flour and eggs in a bowl.
  3. Melt chocolate and butter in a double boiler.
  4. After the chocolate and butter melt, add to the sugar mixture and mix well.
  5. Add vanilla. Pour into pie shell and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.

    this sounds amazingly simple and delicious to boot – can’t wait to try it but… how much sugar?

  2. Yes that would help wouldn’t it! I’ll check the recipe and get back with you.

    How much butter??

  4. Geez, we just cannot get it together on this recipe as far as quantities go! I think the 1/4 cup of butter should be right, but please let me know if you tweak it another way for a better result. Thanks!

  5. to me this recipe tastes like a brownie in a pie shell. Is that what it should taste like???

  6. Brownie in a pie shell is exactly what you’re going for here.

      Nancy when you made this pie did you use just 2 small 1/4 oz pieces of bakers chocolate or did you use more. Thank you.

    By 2 squares of bakers chocolate, do you mean just 2 small 1/4 oz pieces?
