Chocolate Chess Pie
This pie is a twist on a classic! If you like Chess Pie, you will fall in love with the chocolate version!
Servings: 1 pie
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine or 4 tablespoons melted
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornmeal
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup evaporated milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons 100% pure cocoa
- 1 cup nuts Walnuts or pecans are best
- 1 regular pie crust
Melt butter and set aside. Beat sugar, cornmeal, eggs, milk and vanilla extract with mixer. Add melted butter and continue mixing. Mix together the flour and cocoa and add to egg mixture. Fold in nuts. Pour into uncooked pie crust and bake in preheated 400 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes. Pie will rise up while cooking and fall once it has cooled. I usually just cut the oven off, open the door and let the pie cool in the oven. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream on top.
