Recipe by Sandylee
This pie was a Pillsbury Bake Off Winner about 37 years ago....about 1968 if memory serves me. It was a favorite of mine then and has remained so thru the years. I liken it to a fudgy brownie in pie form, so all you Chocolate Lovers....try this pie. Note: Pie puffs up when baking then settles down to a nice fudgy goodness.
