    This is a delicious and easy pie that everyone thinks is much harder to make than it actually is. My family always has a couple of these in our Thanksgiving and Christmas lineup.

    Chocolate Chess Pie
    Pie crust (home made or bought)
    1-1/2 cups sugar
    3 eggs
    2 squares chocolate (I use a good quality semi sweet)
    3 Tbsp butter
    5 Tbsp evaporated milk
    1 Tsp vanilla
    Cinnamon whipped topping

    Melt butter & chocolate. Mix eggs & sugar with the melted butter & chocolate. Add evaporated milk & vanilla.

    Mix well & pour into unbaked crust. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes – reduce heat to 300 – 325 degrees & bake about 25 minutes or until filling is set.

    The one ingredient that makes a difference in this recipe is the quality of the chocolate.

    Cinnamon Whip Topping

    1 cup whipping cream
    1/3 cup powdered sugar
    1/3 tsp cinnamon
    beat all till stiff peaks
    spoon over cooled pie

    forgot to leave a comment when I linked up yesterday! I linked up the BEST crumb topping I’ve ever tried. I would eat any pie if it had this topping on it :)
