My Family loves homemade desserts and I am up for the task as long as it is not too labor intensive. I had never made a chocolate chess pie before but remembered enjoying it a few years ago. Lucky me I had all the ingredients on hand and the pie making began, (and was all gone within 3 days!)
This pie is quick and easy and if you are chocolate lovers like my family then this is the dessert for you!
3/4 cup sugar
5 oz dark chocolate
2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup milk
3 large eggs
1/3 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 9″ pie crust
2 cups ground oatmeal
1/4 cup sugar
5 tablespoons of softened butter
Place the oatmeal in a blender and chop until finely ground (you can also use nuts or cookies that have been crushed). Pour the oatmeal 1/4 cup of sugar in a 9″ pie pan and mix. Add the 5 tablespoons of butter and mix thoroughly, press mixture until flat and it covers the base and walls of the pie plate.
In a sauce pan over medium heat melt the butter and chocolate stirring constantly. When completely melted remove from heat and add the sugar, salt, and flour stir until well blended. Let this mixture rest about 5 minutes then add the vanilla, milk and heavy cream, stir vigorously for 2 minutes. beat the eggs and slowly add one at a time until completely incorporated into chocolate mixture.
Pour the mixture into the pie crust and bake at 325 for 45-50 minutes. Let cool before serving. Top with homemade whipped cream and Enjoy!
