Many years ago, I had an ex-boyfriend in college whose mom made an incredible fudge pie. I have craved that pie for years, and I've been trying to recreate it. I think I've finally figured out the perfect recipe, and I'm looking forward to making it for Thanksgiving. In case you're here for the first time, my Golden November recipe theme is Thanksgiving Basics. This is the 2nd recipe so far this month. The first was a nice brandy apple cider.
+1 pie crust (I used the store bought frozen kind that you can find next to the cookie dough in the grocery store)
+1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
+12 ounces (1 package) of semisweet chocolate chips, melted
+1 teaspoon vanilla
+1 tablespoon of cocoa
+1/2 cup all-purpose flour
+1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Press pie crust into 9-inch pie dish. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Partially bake crust for 5 to 7 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat butter and brown sugar on medium speed until light and well whipped. Don't forget to take your pie crust out of the oven!!!
I used our heavy duty kitchen-aid mixer to mix the ingredients. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after you add each egg. Add melted chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour and pecans.
Pour mixture into the crust. Here's the consistency of the mix pre-bake:
