N0-Crust -  Fabulous FUDGE PECAN PIE

Table of Contents: PIES

 

1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine

6 T. dry cocoa powder

2 T. vegetable oil

2 large eggs

¼ cup plain flour

1 cup granulated sugar

¾ cup pecans, chopped

Sweetened whipped cream (optional)

Slice of fruit (optional)

 

 

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray-oil an 8” or 9” pie-baking dish.  In a small saucepan, melt the butter and stir in the cocoa until blended; then add the oil.

 

In a bowl, beat the eggs very well; then stir in the flour and the sugar.  Add the cocoa mixture and beat vigorously with a fork to blend all ingredients.  Stir in the pecans.

 

Pour the chocolate mixture into the pie-baking dish (no pie crust needed!).  Bake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until the center of the pie tests done.

This is just one of the neatest pies to make.  I almost always have these ingredients on hand so that makes it extra easy.  It is my favorite –“something- homemade-in-a-wild-hurry” dessert.  I can make this from the beginning to walking out the door with it hot and cooked in less than 1 hour!  Of course, my kitchen is a mini-wreak, and I am lightly covered in a dusting of flour, but someone will be getting a marvelous pie, or it will be the perfect ending to dinner.

A hospital administrator, Ken Bloch, gave the recipe to me; unfortunately I have lost contact with him, but I thank him anyway.

It tastes something like a brownie, but is lighter in texture and more delicate.  Serve it in a small wedge since it is very rich.  It can be topped with whipped cream and a slice of fruit, if desired.
