A wonderfully indulgent dessert that makes its own crust. SAM

2 squares unsweetened baker’s chocolate
8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or cognac
Whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In the top of a double boiler over hot water or in a microwave, melt the chocolate and butter. Add the sugar, flour and salt. Temper the eggs with a small amount of melted chocolate; then add the eggs to the chocolate mixture. Add the nuts and vanilla or cognac. Pour into a 9-inch pie plate and bake for 30 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.
Makes 8 servings.

  1. Oh my gosh, this sounds like heaven. Does it sort of turn into a brownie with gooey filling? Regardless, I think I gained 5 pounds just READING it. Yum!
