Fudge Pie

edit_IMG_4627

If I had to describe this recipe with 2 words they would be: easy & delicious
If I were to suggest how to serve it: warm with ice cream
If I were to suggest you make it with someone else... the "someone else" would be: your kids

1 stick melted butter
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1/4 C. cocoa
1/4 C. self-rising flour
1 C. sugar
1 ready to bake regular size pie shell {not deep dish}

Mix ingredients together in bowl with fork until well combined. Avoid using a mixer if possible, over beating the filling will cause the top to rise and crack after baking. Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes. Let sit for 10-15 or as long as you possibly can resist. Feel free to double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple, septuple, or even get crazy and octuple this recipe. But I can't find the word for 9-fold so you'll have to stop at octuple.

This recipe came to me from my friend Everlie. We only go back a few months but I do cherish her friendship. She has a servant's heart, is a wonderful wife, and a fantastic mother to three little boys. Most every time I go into her home she has something prepared on her counter for others; anything from a meal, a pie, or gifts. Just being in her home encourages me to serve others. One day a couple weeks ago I walked in and she had these lined up on her counter, wrapped in cellophane, and each had a card attached. She graciously passed her recipe on to me and it's one that is definitely blog-worthy!

So... go ahead and try it! You won't be sorry!

I have a similar recipe for Chocolate chess pie, except it has evaporated milk in it - can't wait to try this version when we get back home - Love me some warm chocolate pie with cool whip!

Darbs-
why do you wait until 830 p.m. to post something that looks so appealing to the appetite. Remember I'm on weight watchers,i'd eat all my points in ONE bite. I'm thinking to make this for the mom tomm.

Any recipe that starts with a stick of butter is usually a favorite of mine. Can't wait to try it.

Emily said...

That sounds delicious! I can't wait to try it!

Molly said...

Delicious! Always interested in hearing about recipes that are kid friendly. My little helper makes baking and cooking so much more fun. Oh, and messy. But it's a great thing to do on a rainy day!

Looks scrumpt-deli-icious! I have a similar recipe that you can add a cup of pecans to but I think the pure "d" chocolate version looks awesome!

Jennifer said...

Mrs. JP said...

Thanks for the recipe it looks so yummy. I found your blog through "Ordinary Days" blog.

Taylor Wise said...

I saw pictures on Erika's blog and was going to email you for the recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

I love how on your blog you build up other people. I have a close friend and she and her sister are such servants to each other. Whenever I am around them, I want to serve other more, and be closer friends with both of them because Jesus light just shines in them.

Hope you had a happy mother's day!

This is similar to the Chocolate Chess Pie my mom made when I was growing up (and that is still a family favorite). Probably the best pie I've ever had in my life. And the easiest to make. Thanks for sharing - a lot of people are going to love you for this (or hate you, if they're dieting ;)

julie said...

yum! I am making this asap!!

Darby - the best part about fudge pie is that it freezes beautifully. It's just as easy to whip up two and then stick one in the freezer. Unexpected guests? Pull out your pie, slice it frozen and then stick it in the microwave for a few seconds. Voila! You're the hostess with the mostess!!

Loving the blog! Thanks for sharing!
