Southern Chocolate Chess Pie

The best thing about this pie is the look of sheer bliss on people's faces when they taste it.
One of my sons said it is like warm brownie batter....not a half bad description. It is delicious! Even is sooooooooo simple.  More than likely you will have all of the ingredients in your kitchen which makes it even better.  We like it best when it is still slightly warm...and it would be excellent with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Southern Chocolate Chess Pie
preheat the oven to 350
1 single 9 inch pie crust...homemade or store bought
1/2 cup of butter
1 square (1oz) unsweetened chocolate
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tea vanilla
1/4 tea salt
In a saucepan melt butter and chocolate together stirring well.  Remove pan from the heat. Add sugar and stir well.  Beat the eggs with the salt and vanilla. Add the the butter mixture and stir very well....make sure it is thoroughly combined. Pour filling into crust.  Bake in oven about 40 minutes. You want the pie to be puffed up and browned.  It will be pretty firm.  Cool on rack...the filling will "settle" and the pie will be very fudge-like. Best if served slightly warm or at room temp.
