Note: I originally posted this recipe last Thanksgiving, but now that my house is filled with the smell of these pies I decided to post it again. Little Guy is busy making these pies for us. All I can say is yummmmmmmm...
Chocolate Chess Pie
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 T. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 (5 oz.) can evaporated milk
1/4 c. melted butter (1/2 stick)
1 t. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and cocoa together. Beat the eggs then add the cocoa mixture. Beat in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla.Pour mixture into a 9-inch unbaked pie shell (I use Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts) and bake for 45 minutes or until set. (I recommend covering the pie's edges with foil or a pie guard after the first 20 minutes, or when edges attain a good brown color... so they don't burn.) Let cool before slicing.
