Cruising through the newspaper's food section this morning, I came across this recipe. It comes originally from Linda Ellerbee's new book, Take Big Bites. The newspaper article said that it's the kind of recipe that everyone needs: an easy dessert that will knock the socks off of your guests. Make the "pie" and serve it with berries and ice cream on top:
Mama's Rescued Fudge Pie
2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour (yep, you read that right)
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place chocolate and butter in a 4 cup Pyrex measure or a microwave-safe bowl. Heat on high heat for 1 minute, stir, and heat for 30 seconds more. Let sit for a minute or so and stir until chocolate dissolves completely. Ad sugar, flour eggs, vanilla and salt. Stir until well-combined. Pour into lightly oiled 9-inch pie pan.
Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool for as long as you can wait. If you can't wait, vanilla ice cream helps cool a slice of pie on your plate!
This sounds great, because it sounds easy. And I generally have all the necessary ingredients in my pantry/refrigerator.
Maybe I'll try it this weekend.
