|A Delicious Chocolate Pie|
In short, it is mind-blowing.
For one 9-inch pie:
- 1.5 cups of sugar
- 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 3/4 cup of evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients. I found it worked best to add them together one at a time and mix them until smooth, taking special care with the cocoa powder to get it well dissolved. Otherwise, I found that the ingredients get clumpy and while it still tastes the same, it doesn't look quite as nice.
Pour the mixture into the cooked pie crust and bake for 45 minutes. When it is done, the center won't be solid--it will move around a bit as you take it out. You can also cover the edges of the crust with foil half-way through the baking, if you like, to keep the crust from burning. I didn't find this to be necessary, however.
That's it! Let it cool completely before serving, and you can serve with whipped cream if you like.
