September means the start of pie season.
I guess you could have pie anytime you want, but don’t you normally eat a bunch of pie in the fall/holiday months?
I love a good pumpkin pie (the marshmallow pumpkin pie I made last year is AMAZING) and pecan pie also has a special place in my heart. Fruit pies, like apple and cherry, are some of my favorites.
But chocolate pie…CHOCOLATE pie…that is a pie worth making.
You’ve got several chocolate pie recipes to choose from (silk, meringue, etc) but might I suggest something better? A brownie pie is just what you need.
It’s the best of both desserts—a smooth, chewy brownie inside a pie crust. Top it off with whipped cream or ice cream and you’ve got one heckuva dessert.
- Melt chocolate in a microwavable safe bowl according to package instructions. During last 10 seconds of melting in microwave, add butter in.
- Stir chocolate with butter and evaporated milk until smooth. Slowly add in eggs, sugar, flour and salt. Stir in nuts and vanilla and mix until smooth.
- Pour chocolate filling into unbaked pie crust. Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
