Angus Barn's Chocolate Chess Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

This recipe is courtesy of Angus Barn in Raleigh NC Thad Eure Jr. and Charles M. Winston opened the Angus Barn in 1960 when this part of Raleigh was a pastoral, country setting. Today, the Angus Barn is in the midst of the action between the RDU Airport, Raleigh and Durham. It is consistently ranked as one of the top 100 restaurants in the U.S.. When you pay your bill, this recipe is given to you on a beautifully decorated card. It is a most requested recipe from their restaurant. I have had the pleasure in indulging in this sinfully delicious dessert on several occasions, OK I'll be honest, EVERY TIME I go to Angus Barn LOL... It is incredibly delicious with the richness only chocolate can bring and let me tell you, your chocolate craving will be gone with the indulgence of this pie! The time is not including making your own pie crust, if that is what you use. ************************************************For those of you wondering what the pie looks like and to see the original recipe go to: http://abclocal.go.com/wtvd/story?section=resources/lifestyle_community/food/recipes&id=5985711.

Top Review by Bliss

I'm giving this 4* for taste, because the taste and texture is very nice. I'm giving it a low 2* for appearance, because the filling and crust were the same thickness and it was quite unattractive before cutting. I'm not sure what ingredient the restaurant left out in their recipe given out (or what step), but something is wrong. To have at home, I'd do this one again, but would never consider taking it to someone.
