Coaches' Treat

Dorito's team had a potluck-and-billiards party today, but his coach gave up chocolate for Lent. He was disappointed not to enjoy my Hot Fudge Pie. Here is the recipe so he can make it for their Easter Sunday celebration!

Hot Fudge Pie
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter (I use melted)
1/4 c. flour
1/4 c. cocoa powder
1 t. vanilla
Pinch of salt
9" Frozen pie crust (shallow)
For deep dish pie crust, I use one and a half times the recipe.
First, mix eggs, sugar, and butter together well. Then add dry ingredients and combine. Lastly, add vanilla. Prick the pie crust with a fork at 1" intervals --do not pre-bake crust. Pour fudge mixture into pie crust. Bake at 350' F until center is firm - about 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped pecans or hazelnuts prior to baking, if desired. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. I also recommend it with port chocolate sauce.
