This is a dream of a chocolate nut pie :) I made a gluten free pie crust and reduced sugar and syrup: 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup honey (I don't use corn syrup) - personal preference, I just don't like it very sweet. It didn't seem to affect the texture because the pie came out perfect, and the taste was fantastic. Thanks for posting!
Made for Went To The Market.
This is an amazing rich, nutty and delicously chocolate pie. I heated ours right before serving and added a big spoonful of Vanilla Bean ice cream on top to send it over the edge!
This pie gets 5 stars alone for taste! That said, I think it would be better suited to a deep-dish crust, as my filling over-ran...It did puff up nicely, but the crust was covered with filling, so not too pretty :( I did cover it with whipped topping, and it tasted fabulous! I followed the directions, as stated, and the pie is very fudgy, rich and decadent. I will make this again, but next time, I'll try a bit larger crust. Thanks for sharing, Syd!
