Chocolate Walnut Pie

Happy PI Day Yall! Pull out all the stops with this ultra rich dessert.  It is the classic combo of chocolate and walnuts baked together in a unforgettably delicious pie. Perfect for PI day!


I am not sure if I mentioned it, but I think that I am pie crust challenged.

There I have said it.

I am not sure if they have a support group for that sort of thing. If they did, I would go all the time.

I am not sure when I became pie challenged I just have.

Every time I try to make a homemade pie crust it turns out wrong.

Very very wrong.

So I do not make it. There are plenty of crusts on the market that are perfectly fine in using. I do not think that making my own crust makes me a bad cook. I think there are plenty of people who make cakes with cake mixes. All things do not have to be from scratch all the time. Sometimes you just want to have a shortcut.

Like now with this yummy pie.


Chocolate Walnut Pie


4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 tablespoons butter
3 large eggs
1 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extrac
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 ci[s walnuts
1 9 inch unbaked pie crust


Heat oven to 325 degrees.
Melt chocolate and butter in the microwave for 1 minute. Stir until it is melted and smooth. Do increments of 10 seconds if more time is needed to completely melt. In a large bowl of a electric mixer or whisk, beat eggs, corn syrup, sugar vanilla and salt. Beat until blended add chocolate mixture. Fold in walnuts. Pour into a prepared pie crust and bake for about an hour. It may be a good idea to have a pan under the pie plate so nothing splatters on the bottom of your oven. Allow to cool at room temperature completely before cutting and eating.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

Peace be with you,
