I posted yesterday about our dinner, but deferred a dessert discussion until today. As the baker in the family, Bev, of course made the pies. We normally use pre-made frozen pie crusts for pies, quiches, etc, but having none on hand, the baker decided to try her hand at making them. She has a pie recipe from King Arthur Flour that she likes to use which includes the crust and a super chocolaty filling. The recipe is pretty long so rather than post it, here’s the - link. The crusts were a little thicker than she wanted, but still flakey, tender and tasty.
When I was a kid, chocolate pie was my favorite dessert and I’m pretty sure Mom just filled a pie crust (her's were second to none) with pudding from a boxed mix. The one Bev made was a serious chocolate lovers delight and I loved it – actually there was some left over and I’m still loving it. The pics don’t do it justice but if you’re looking for a chocolate pie recipe, this may be the one for you.

Have a great day.
