Chocolate Fudge Pie

This is a rich, fudge-like pie that should be served in small sections. I got this recipe out of the paper years ago, tried it, and liked it, but I only make it occasionally as it is truly rich! If you love chocolate fudge, you will love this pie. It is not a traditional chocolate pie as it is not like a pudding, but more like fudge poured into a pie shell. This makes an awesome dessert for a light luncheon or dinner. It is also a fine pie to make for showers of all kinds.

Chocolate Fudge Pie

2 cups sugar
4 Tbls. unbleached flour
4 Tbls. unsweetened cocoa
2 cups whole milk or evaporated milk*
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1- 9" baked pie crust*

In a 3 quart saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, and cocoa; add eggs, and a little milk and mix well. Add rest of milk and vanilla;  blend well. Cook over medium low heat till thick, watching not to scorch. Pour filling into baked pie shell, smoothing top. Cool and garnish with some real whipped cream and chocolate curls, if desired.


*The evaporated milk would make a richer pie.
*You can use a regular pie crust, a graham cracker crust, or a cookie crust.
