the best pie


Ok, this really is maybe the best pie ever. It's a chocolate chess pie and was totally worth saving up all of my sugar during the week for a slice. It poofs up like a soufflé in the oven, but then deflates as it cools. After chilling it in the fridge overnight, I served it with freshly whipped cream after Sunday dinner. It is rich and dense and so delicious.

Two notes: I halved the recipe and only made one pie. While I regret this, I am glad that I don't have a whole other pie to avoid as I am back to not eating sweets during the week. And I left out the coffee extract and I can't imagine that its omission lessened the deliciousness.

I don't think I am overstating things when I say that I might never make another kind of pie again.

  1. We had a chocolate chess pie this weekend, too! A local pie shop makes one that is so good. Their crust is shortbread. 😳
