This Chocolate Chess Pie is so good. I cannot decide which one I like better, the regular chess pie or the chocolate.
1/4 cup butter or margarine or 4 tablespoons, melted
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornmeal
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons 100% pure cocoa
1 cup nuts (Walnuts or pecans are best)
1 regular pie crust (The one in the photo is a bought crust. If you want to make your own, here is the link to the pie crust recipe.)
Melt butter and set aside. Beat sugar, cornmeal, eggs, milk and vanilla extract with mixer. Add melted butter and continue mixing. Mix together the flour and cocoa and add to egg mixture. Fold in nuts. Pour into uncooked pie crust and bake in preheated 400 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes. Pie will rise up while cooking and fall once it has cooled. I usually just cut the oven off, open the door and let the pie cool in the oven. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream on top. Enjoy!
