Ingredients
  

  • 1 traditional or graham cracker pie crust
  • 2 1/2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups Whipped cream

Instructions
 

  • Bake the pie crust, unless you are using a graham cracker crust.
  • In a small saucepan, melt the chocolate over low heat. Remove it from the heat and let it cool.
  • Meanwhile, in an electric mixer, cream the butter.
  • Gradually add the sugar and blend until creamy.
  • Mix in the cooled chocolate and the vanilla.
  • Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating for 5 minutes after each addition on medium speed until the mixture is very light and fluffy.

  • Serve it topped with whipped cream, chocolate shavings, and crushed walnuts, if desired. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pie.
