In honor of Pi Day

No, there is no picture. But I did make pie.

I was determined. It was Pi Day. Pi Day must include pie of some sort. It’s the law.

Jimmy and I debated over text while I worked my evening shift. Should we go out to eat somewhere where we can get pie? Should we buy pie but cook at home? Should we go eat somewhere but get pie elsewhere? Our dinner plans clearly revolved around the availability of pie.

The ultimate decision? We would cook dinner when I got home, and I would make a chocolate pie. Luckily, I have a recipe for a super-easy, super-delicious chocolate pie. I firmly believe there is no better pie than chocolate pie.

Here’s my recipe. It’s out of Merry Christmas from Texas.

Super-Easy Chocolate Pie

1 stick butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup flour
1 9″ pie crust, unbaked

Mix all the ingredients together and pour into pie crust. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes.

That’s it! If you have ever had chocolate chess pie, this pie is quite similar. It’s best in a regular pie crust, not deep dish, as there’s not enough filling to fill a deeper crust.
