This is always the first pie to go when I bring it to group gatherings! It is a very chocolatey, firm textured pie. Wonderful served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Pecans may be used instead of walnuts.

I tried a lot of this kind and they are usually pretty much the same although you change something here and there. I must say this one stands a little apart because it turns out really true southern cooking as you expect it to be and to taste. Read More

This recipe calls for way too much butter. It had leaked out of the pie onto the cookie sheet & saturated the crust as well. I would go with 1 stick or 1 1/2 at the most. Also cut back a little on cooking time- got a little too brown on top. Read More

4 stars because its way too much butter. Almost ruins the pastry because it bakes out into the crust. It is very dense and rich. delicious flavor. I would reduce butter by at least half next time. Read More
