It’s Pie Time


I’m not much of a baker, but I love to bake this particular pie. It’s simple, yummy, and comes out perfect 90% of the time. This week, I was determined to have one baked up and delivered for a friend’s birthday happy; however, I did encounter the worst one I’ve ever put into the oven. It cracked completely around the edge of the pie; and usually I’m used to a single crack in the middle, which no one ever seems to mind. But, out of this continual crack, the insides started bubbling out like an active volcano. So, that one went to the testers (also know as the parentals). But I will say that my second attempt came out perfectly without a crack, which has never happened before. So, Happy Birthday, Chelsea! It was quite the pie to complete this week.

Chocolate Chess Pie

1 graham cracker crust

1 stick unsalted butter

1 ounce square semi-sweetened chocolate

1 cup sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Melt the butter and chocolate together. Pour into a bowl and whisk together with the sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt. Pour the filling into the crust, and bake in a 325-degree oven for about 40 minutes or until the top is set. (It’s best served warm!)
