Yazoo Market Chocolate Chess Pie
This simple Delta favorite has a brownie-like filling and comes topped with whipped cream, ice cream, or meringue—or with nothing to gild the lily.
Makes 6 to 8 servings
11/2 cups sugar
31/2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1/4 pound (1 stick) butter, melted
2/3 cup evaporated milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, mix together the sugar and cocoa.
Stir in the melted butter, evaporated milk, eggs, and vanilla.
Pour into the pie shell and bake until the filling is nearly set with a slightly jiggly center, about 45 minutes.
Serve warm or at room temperature. This is great with whipped cream or ice cream.
