Allrecipes Community Tips and Praise

"Great recipe," raves Joanna. "I used a tablespoon of bourbon instead of lemon juice and it was amazing!"

"This is a great pie," according to KATERINAJB. "VERY, VERY rich though — it needs vanilla ice cream or quite a bit of whipped cream to cut the chocolatey goodness a little. I'll definitely make it again."

"Easy, quick, and delicious," says Seattle Siren. "What more can I say? I put pecans on the top for decoration."
