It is my hubby’s birthday today. Happy Birthday!
I asked him what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday this year. Instead of cake, he wanted a pie. His favorite is cherry pie, but we could not find any fresh cherries. So chocolate pie was second on the list.
I decided to use a recipe from The Pioneer Woman.
I love my mom’s homemade crust, but after working 9 hours…Pillsbury’s Pie Crust was the obvious choice!
I did cook my pie crust a little longer than I needed, but it still was delicious!
I had all my ingredients ready to go and found this recipe was really quite easy.
It calls for bittersweet chocolate. I used Ghirardelli and chopped fine and added after the pie filling was beginning to thicken. I think this tasted better than using cocoa powder.
The pie was a huge success, mainly because my hubby loved it!
