step-by-step directions We've Made Cooking As Easy As 1-2-3! printer friendly version 
  • 1
    Preheated oven 350°F.
  • 2
    1 disc of Perfect Pie Crust
    On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8" thickness. Place inside a pie dish and line with parchment and baking beans or weights. Blind bake for 8 minutes. Carefully remove parchment and beans and bake for 4 additional minutes.
  • 3
    Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • 4
    12 ounces Bittersweet Chocolate
    1 cup Butter
    In a small, heavy bottomed saucepan, melt Chocolate and Butter over low heat.  Let Chocolate mixture cool.  (Alternatively, Chocolate and Butter may be melted in the microwave.  Be careful not to overheat and burn it.)
  • 5
    5 large Eggs (room temperature)
    1 cup Sugar
    1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
    1/3 cup Flour
    1 teaspoon Salt
    Chocolate / Butter Mixture
    1/2 cup Semi- Sweet Chocolate Chunks
    Using a mixer, whisk Eggs and Sugar until thickened and lemon-colored; blend in Vanilla.  Sift Flour and Salt together and fold in; blend in the Chocolate mixture on low speed until thoroughly blended. Fold in the Chocolate chunks.
  • 6
    Pour into the pie crust and bake for 20-25 minutes or until slightly dry on top and slightly jiggly in the center.
  • 7
    Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
  • 8
    1/2 cup Chopped Nuts (pecans & walnuts; toasted)
    Salted Caramel Sauce (to drizzle)
    Garnish with toasted nuts and a drizzle of Salted Caramel sauce to serve.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Blind bake the crust. Blind baking is baking the crust once without the filling. Use wax paper with beans on top to keep the crust from bubbling.
    2. Whisk the chocolate together until the butter is fully incorporated.
    3. Salted caramel recipe is on thechew.com
    4. Let the pie rest for 10 minutes and then serve. If making this pie ahead of time, re-warm in the oven or microwave.
