Happy 2015 everyone! I hope this year brings you much peace and happiness. A new year (for me) means lots and lots of new recipes! I wanted to start off right by making a pie. This pie has a graham cracker crust and a brownie-like center. Sophisticated and decadent. Just what I want my 2015 to look like 😉 So, let’s go make a pie…
What you will need:
9 inch springform pan
For the crust:
1 1/2 cups crushed graham crackers
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the filling:
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 oz semi sweet chocolate, melted
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees fahrenheit. Spray the pan with a non-stick spray.
To make the crust, combine the graham cracker crumbs and salt in a bowl. Pour in the melted butter and stir until moistened. Press the crumbs firmly against the bottom and sides of the pan. Set aside.
For the filling, combine sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a bowl. Pour in the melted butter and chocolate and stir with a wooden spoon until combined. Beat in the vanilla and eggs, one at a time. Stir in flour until just moistened. Batter will be thick.
Carefully spread the batter over the crust and smooth out with a spatula or back of a spoon.
Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack before releasing the sides of the pan. Top with powdered sugar, whipped cream, or even toasted marshmallows to make it a s’more pie! Slice and enjoy!
