Chocolate Buttermilk Pie

This pie is incredibly decadent. Eat it while it’s still warm and it has the taste and texture of brownie batter, cold it’s like a pie full of truffle. It's so delicious that it was toddler approved – thanks Levi (I put out the pie to take a picture or two. I turned around to grab my camera and caught the little guy red handed. It was the last piece…)

2 uncooked pie shells
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
½ cup butter
3 eggs
1 ½ cups sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
¼ cup Partially Sifted Flour

Melt the chocolate chips and butter together on a double broiler. Set aside to cool a bit. Beat eggs until frothy then add sugar, vanilla, buttermilk, flour and melted chocolate beating well between each addition.

Pour the batter evenly into pie shells and bake at 350°F for about an hour or until centre is firm and top is crusty. I used a cookie sheet under each pie to catch any overflow. Eat warm or chilled – both are delicious.
