Chocolate Pie

A few weeks ago, my husband’s volunteer fire department held their annual roast beef supper fundraiser.  Hubs asked me to make a few pies.  It was a bit on short notice, so I whipped some chocolate pies up.  They aren’t like a pudding pie, it was more like a brownie/whipped cream deliciousness.  The recipe is gluten-free, so if you have a recipe for gluten-free pie crust, you should try this out!

Step 1: Pre-bake your pie crust.

Step 2: Over a double boiler, melt 1c of semi-sweet chocolate chips with 1/2 c of margarine or butter

Step 3: In a separate bowl, beat three eggs, a dash of salt, and 1/2 c of sugar.  When well-beaten, gradually add to the chocolate mixture.

Step 4: With your oven set to 350, bake for 15-20 minutes, until it is firm, and cracks start to appear on top.

Step 5: After it has cooled (the fridge being the best place for it to set), you can make some whipped cream for the top.  I put in about 1/2 c of whipping cream (18% cream) into a cold bowl and starting whipping.  Gradually add a few tablespoons of sugar until you’ve reached the desired consistency.  **Note, add the sugar asap, otherwise you may end up with butter**

Step 6: Top with some shaved chocolate or sprinkles, and enjoy!
