Thanksgiving is about spending time with your loved ones complete with comfort food.  If you haven’t already planned your holiday desert then this recipe is a winner – Deep Chocolate and Walnut Pie.  I have made it every year since before I moved to Orlando for Thanksgiving and/or Christmas – by request.  So enjoy!

Deep Chocolate and Walnut Pie

Use your favorite pie crust recipe.  I use one from an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook.  The recipe creates two crusts so I usually double the pie recipe too and send some home with my guests.

3 large eggs
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
¼ cup light corn syrup
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup brandy or cognac (optional)
4 tbsp. melted butter
5oz. semisweet chocolate coarsely chopped
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
Whipped cream – plain or lightly sweetened
Grated chocolate or chocolate curls

Preheat oven to 325.  In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs until pale and frothy.  Add the sugar, corn syrup, baking soda, and brandy and stir until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in butter, chopped chocolate and walnuts until well blended.

Pour the filling into the unbaked pie shell.  Bake 40-45 minutes or until the filling is firm to the touch and top is golden brown.  You may want to cover edges of pastry with foil so it doesn’t over brown.  Remove from oven and cool completely on wire rack before cutting.

This pie tastes even better if you make it the day before and allow it to set overnight.  And that leaves your oven free for the turkey!

Serve with whipped cream and grated chocolate (I usually forget the grated chocolate and nobody misses it).

I am so looking forward to a few peaceful days with friends and family and enjoying our holiday dinner.  What about you?  Are you planning on decorating for Christmas this weekend?  Or do you like to wait a bit?  I have to confess I have plans to start this weekend after enjoying a few relaxing days!
