My friend, Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee is doing this fun meme again this year. I am excited! I had a recipe ready and waiting!
Over the weekend I had 2 different covered dish dinners to attend. Since I don't have any way to cook where these dinners are, I have to prepare ahead of time for them. Well, this time, I happened to be lax and lazy and had no inspiration. So, before we headed out of town for the first dinner I made a quick run to Wally's... there, on the back wall, on the marked down cart of day old bakery items was a Paula Deen Old Fashioned Fudge Pie. I snatched that sucker up and ran by the whipped cream section and was on my way... smiling the whole way.
So, as it would be, the dessert table was laden with wonderful goodies. Only 2 small slices were eaten (me and hugsum) of my pie. I brought it home and ate another slice... the next morning ANOTHER slice. Then on Sunday I ate 2 more slices. I decided that since I've eaten almost the entire thing I should find out how to make it.
I googled it... here is the recipe from Paula herself!
Old Fashioned Fudge Pie
2 squares (2 oz) semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup (one stick) REAL butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 9"uncooked pie crust
Preheat oven to 375*
Melt chocolate and butter together in heavy saucepan over low heat. Remove the pan from the heat and add sugar, then the eggs. Beat well. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 25 minutes or until just set. Serve warm or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.
