Best Chocolate Pie Recipe
What can be more decadent than a great chocolate pie recipe?
You'll find some of my favorites in the links at the bottom of this page.
Since this site features the Web's BEST recipes, I offer two variations. First, there's the economical, easy-to-make recipe for chocolate pie. Secondly, you'll find the gourmet version for those times when you want to give your family a special treat, or you're entertaining guests.
Tip: To elevate a chocolate pie from the every-day to the divine, use fine chocolate and other gourmet ingredients. The "real" cooking secrets of top chefs lies in the quality of the ingredients they use.
You might try Callebaut Baking Chocolate, for example. Until recently, this amazing chocolate from Belgium was
available only to pastry chefs. Now, the company is making small slabs of their fine chocolate available to home bakers. Try it in your chocolate pie recipe. You can get excellent baking chocolate in many varieties at
Chocolate.com - The World's Largest Chocolate Marketplace
Tip: Marble rolling pins and rolling boards are best for rolling pastry dough. Their cool surface keeps the dough cooler, and therefore more tender. The Fox Run Marble Rolling Pin and Base
is an excellent example.
Tip: Protect fluted edges from over-browning with a pie crust shield like the Talisman Designs Adjustable Pie Shield
It saves the bother of fiddling with strips of foil when you bake the crusts of your chocolate pie recipe.
Tip: The less flour you add during rolling your pastry for your chocolate pie recipe, the better. Using a non-stick pastry mat allows you to greatly minimize the amount of flour you will have to add at this point.
Tip: You already know the trick of lining an unbaked single pie shell with beans to prevent shrinkage while baking. Some home cooks use weights instead. The easiest method involves using a chain weight like this JAZ Innovations 10 Feet Beaded Pie Weight Chain. This is much simpler to wash and clean afterwards than are the beans. And, you can make soup out of your beans instead of saving them for pie crusts.
