  • Gather pastry into ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured cloth-covered board. Roll pastry 2 inch larger than inverted 9x1-1/4 inch pie plate. Fold pastry into quarters. Place in plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side. Trim edge of pastry 1inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll pastry under, even with plate. Flute.

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  • In large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add 1/2 cup flour and brown and white sugars. Beat until well-blended. Blend in butter. Stir in chocolate morsels and walnuts. Pour into the pastry-lined pie plate.

  • Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) until set, about 1 hour. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. Makes about 8 to 12 servings.

Not what I expected. Used margarine since I had an excess on hand and the result was a very greasy and dense dessert. Okay but I will definitely modify if I make it again. Read More

This is pure decadent goodness. I made them in individual cast iron pans and they came out fabulous. Add a little vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce and you'll have everyone drooling. Read More

This recipe is perfect as is. I would not recommend any substitutions as you will not get the same pie. Read More

This recipe is amazing!Similar to a butterscotch brownie in a pie crust with chocolate chips added in. I did use a prepared crust (pie crusts are not my forte). Also used 1/2 the butter as recommended in other reviews. I like to mix my chips so it was 1/2 white chocolate 1/2 semisweet. I did use walnuts. Needed slightly over an hour to bake. Try this!
