Chocolate Nutty Goodness...Brownie-Walnut Pie


1/2 cup butter
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, cut up
1 Pastry for Single-Crust Pie
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 Hot Fudge Sauce or fresh fruit, such as raspberries, sliced strawberries, or sliced peaches, or vanilla ice cream (optional)


For filling, in a small heavy saucepan melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring frequently. Remove from heat; cool for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare and roll out Pastry for Single-Crust Pie. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pastry circle and trim. Crimp edge as desired.

For filling, in a medium bowl combine eggs, sugar, flour, and vanilla; stir in the chocolate mixture and nuts.

Pour filling into a pastry-lined pie plate. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 to 55 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with Hot Fudge Sauce, fresh fruit, or vanilla ice cream. Makes 8 slices.
