Happy Pi Day!

Oh happy day!  A day devoted to eating pie.  I had another post written about today but it started to sound irrational and went on for what seemed infinity.  Instead of that post, I will leave you with this incredibly easy and more incredibly delicious recipe for a fudge pie.  You might have the ingredients in your pantry and fridge right now and could be eating pie in as little as 3.14 hours.

We also had a quiche which may not technically be a pie but it is round and round works with Pi.  Happy Pi day everyone!

Fudge Pie 

4 ounces of unsweetened chocolate

2 sticks of unsalted butter

4 eggs

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups of sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 teaspoons of vanilla

Deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a heavy bottomed saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate and let cool.

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs.  Add the  flour, sugar, salt and vanilla to the beaten eggs.  Add the butter and chocolate mixture and stir until all of the ingredients have been incorporated.

Pour into the pieshell (no need to pre-bake) and bake for 45 minutes.   The middle may still be jiggly but it is done.  Let cool for an hour and then serve.  This is even better when made the day before.  Serve with whipped cream or Bluebell homestyle vanilla ice-cream.
