Chocolate Chess Pie

ChocolateMaplePieStep9ChocolateMaplePieStep10

This pie is so easy and delicious! Using ingredients right from the homestead, it’s also fairly healthy.

Make it gluten/grain free with a nut crust. 2 cups ground nuts (pecans or walnuts work great) stir in 1/4 cup melted butter & 1/2 teaspoon salt, press into pie pan and pre-bake for a few minutes.

Chocolate Chess Pie with Maple Syrup
1/2 cup melted butter
3 eggs
3/4 cup maple syrup
2 tsp. vanilla
6 Tbs. cocoa powder
1 unbaked pie shell {refer to our recipe in the Homestead Blessings Cookbook}
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and pre-bake your pie shell.
Melt butter and pour into mixing bowl. When it is room temperature, add the eggs and whisk and beat until it has an almost creamy consistency. Add maple syrup, vanilla and cocoa powder. Stir until smooth and well combined. Pour into pie shell and bake for 35-40 minutes. The center should be set and a tooth pick come out clean when it is done.

  1. I love that you included a grain-/gluten-free option for the crust! I am going to make this egg-free, too, for my son who has a lot of allergies.

    Thank you, ladies! Our whole family loves your Homestead Blessings DVDs and your beautiful music! You have truly blessed our family by sharing your knowledge and ideas.
