Decadent Chocolate Pie
- 1 1/2 C crushed chocolate cookies, either Oreo's or try Thin Mints for a twist on the taste
- 3 T butter, melted
- 3/4 C sugar
- 1/4 C flour
- 1 T instant Espresso
- 2 C heavy cream
- 4 large eggs, slightly beaten
- 1 1/3 C dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 1 T vanilla
- 2 T butter, cubes
In a large pot, add cream, sugar and flour, whisking well, over medium heat. Before it gets too hot, add beaten eggs and whisk well so it doesn't scramble as it heats up to cook. Stirring continually, cook for 15 minutes then remove from heat.
Add chocolate and stir as it melts then add vanilla and stir to incorporate. Finally, add the cubes of butter, mix well and pour into cooled cookie crust. Refrigerate for an hour before serving to fully set.
