Chocolate Pie

When my girls were little, they only wanted chocolate desserts. I started to make this pie for the girls when I made pecan pie for the adults. Soon I discovered that both adults and children were eating both pies. This is simple and very rich tasting. I try to bake pies the same day that I serve them. They taste so much better when they are fresh. You can always prepare the dough for the crust weeks in advance and freeze it; the remaining steps are quite fast.


Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, stir eggs, syrup, sugar, margarine or butter, and vanilla. Stir in chocolate. Pour into pie shell. Bake about 1 hour, or until knife in center comes clean. Cool.
