Directions

  1. Spoon flour into measuring cup and level. Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in Crisco using pastry blender (or 2 knives) until all flour is blended in to form pea-size chunks. Sprinkle with water, one tablespoon at a time. Toss lightly with fork until dough will form ball. Divide dough in half, if making double crust. Press between hands to form a 5 to 6-inch pancake.
  2. Flour dough lightly. Roll into circle between sheets of waxed paper on dampened countertop. Peel off top sheet. For single crust, trim one inch larger than inverted 9-inch pie plate. Flip into pie plate. Remove other sheet and press pastry to fit. Fold edge under. Flute.
  3. Make the filling: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, blend CRISCO(R) and sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Blend in eggs, one at a time.
  4. With a wooden spoon, stir in melted chocolate, espresso powder and vanilla until smooth. Add flour and nuts and stir until combined.
  5. Assemble the pie: Transfer filling mixture to pie crust. Bake 25 minutes. Cool pie completely on a cooling rack, then refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

This is a great pie if you're a chocoholic. I made my own crust using a different recipe, but I followed the recipe here to make the filling. However, I used walnuts instead. The pie came out rich and chocolatey; definitely decadent. I baked it for 25 minutes and the center was still a little wet; I should have put it back into the oven for a few more minutes. Nearer to the edge had a more solid consistency that I liked better, but the slightly creamy center was still delicious!! Will definitely make this again.

John liked...said it was like a brownie pie. Very high in calories though; and not as creamy as I thought it would be.
