On The Menu: Fudge Pie

I love pie, it is one of my favorite desserts! My future mother-in-law makes the best homemade pies. I have always been daunted by the idea of making my own pie. I didn't want to fall flat compared to her pies. I stumbled upon this Southern Living recipe and it seemed so easy and looked so good. I decided to surprise my fiancé and bake him a pie! It turned out that I didn't fall flat, it was delicious!

To start, preheat the oven to 375. You will need 2/3 cups evaporated milk, 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1 cup of chopped pecans, 2 large eggs, 2 tablespoons butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (oops, forgot this one), 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and frozen (or homemade if you feel extra domestic) pie crust!

Melt evaporated milk, chocolate chips, and butter in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds.

Add in flour, sugar, salt, eggs (one at a time), vanilla extract, and pecans.

Mix together and pour batter into pie crust.

Bake pie for 35 minutes, then let it cool for 10. Serve under ice cream, preferably Blue Bell!


On a side note, my new favorite addition to my kitchen are these adorable Kate Spade towels and matching oven mitt. They were a surprise from LRW and totally complete my kitchen!
