Today is another beautiful Saturday. Billy and Tommy leave for camp tomorrow. They will be gone for a whole week!! I asked Tommy what he wanted me to make for dessert for his last night here for a while. He didn't have to think long! Chocolate pie. This has been a favorite dessert around here since the first time I made it a couple of years ago. It is absolutely to die for served with a scoop of ice cream.

Here's the recipe in case you'd like to try it yourself.

pre-bake a 9 inch pie shell for 5 minutes

melt together over med/low heat:
1 stick butter
1-oz unsweetened chocolate (I substituted 3 Tbls cocoa powder + 1 Tbls oil)

to the chocolate mixture, add:
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour

pour into pie shell
bake @ 350* for 25 minutes

cool at least 1 hour before slicing

I hope you enjoy this pie as much as we do!!!!
