When you think of chocolate pie, you're thinking of this pie - decadent, luxurious, fudgey chocolate filling baked into a light and flaky crust, topped with homemade whipped cream and chocolate shavings. This is no meringue, no French silk business, no pudding pie. This is homemade chocolate pie as it was meant to be.
As with all good things, this pie takes time and effort (mostly the effort of waiting for it to chill before serving!), but once you try it, you'll never go back. Accept no imitations, no short cuts, and be prepared to throw all other recipes away.
This is the quintessential chocolate pie recipe you've been dreaming of.
