Tessie and the Chocolate Pie

Tessie is hilarious sometimes. She tries so hard to get every piece of food we drop on the floor, but eventually she will just give up. You can still see the longing in her eyes though!

Chocolate Pie with Coconut Crust

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 2 cups shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons granulated white sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter

Pie:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup white corn syrup

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Prepare the pie crust:  In a medium bowl, combine all of the pie crust ingredients and mix well.  Pat the crust into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate (do not use a deep dish pie plate).
  3. Prepare the filling:  In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over low heat.  Stir in the chocolate; stir until melted.  Remove from heat and stir in the sugar and whipping cream.  Let cool slightly, then whisk in the eggs- whisk briskly by hand for one minute.  Stir in the vanilla and corn syrup until well-combined.
  4. Pour the filling into the coconut crust.  Bake for 35 minutes or until the pie is no longer jiggly in the middle and the crust is golden brown.
