Fudge Pie

Did you see the movie/read the book The Help? Remember Minny's famous Chocolate Pie? I was testing recipes this week for the GA Ag Dept and this one was in the stack. When it came out of the oven, I knew it looked familiar! Lo and behold, it IS Minny's pie! Well.... minus her "special" ingredient, of course! I laughed out loud! Bill had no idea and there was no way I could explain it adequately, so, I just let it go. He LOVES the pie loaded with whipped cream. Seeing him digging in made it even funnier!

Fudge Pie
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 stick melted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup chopped toasted pecans
1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust

Preheat oven to 375 degrees .
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in eggs, melted butter, vanilla and pecans.
Pour into crust. Bake for 30 minutes. When done, the center will shake slightly. Remove from the oven
and cool on a wire rack. It will firm up as it cools. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream!
