Small Dice Challenge: Chocolate Cookie Pie

Easter is not Easter without the story of a fall and rise of a being.  This is such a tale.  We were getting ready to visit our good friend, Rina.  I had promised her a hollow Easter bunny because she likes to break their heads off and put ice cream into them.  It is quite savage.  The day before visiting I put the bunnies (there was another one for her son as well) in the trunk and completely forgot about them until we were ready to leave the next day.  I opened my trunk and discovered a sight that was fit for an episode of CSI.  It was particularly warm that day, and the bunnies were hollow no more. Not wanting to waste perfectly good chocolate, I thought of what I could do. I happened to have pie crust in my fridge, so I thought about making a chocolate pie, but I wasn’t quite sure how to go about doing it.

So, I just started putting in the usual suspects.

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • About 1/4 stick of butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • Not sure if baking powder was necessary but put it in anyways

And, yes, I still have pecans in my freezer. So, I chopped up the bunny and the pecans and threw them in, too.

I put the pie in at 350º for about 20 minutes or until the crust started to brown. I really didn’t follow the time. When I took it out, I broke some more chocolate pieces off and put them on top to melt. And there you go. Done.

My daughter loved it. She ate everything but the crust. So I pretty much could’ve made regular cookies.

I am a mother of two married to a Pastry Cook. I have worked in restaurants in various positions, but ended up as a teacher. Since having my last child, though, I am a stay-at-home mom trying to survive by cooking from home. I have never been someone who could open the fridge and whip up meals willy-nilly, but have been inspired by watching reruns of Chopped this summer. My post Small Dice is an ode to the show and, also, a challenge to myself to become a better cook and a more efficient mom. In addition, I love movies and music. I will be harassed throughout this blog for my love of Doris Day and Billy Idol, because they will be sure to come up, but I don’t care, it’s nothing new for me.
