Chocolate, coffee and rum are dolled up with sugar, eggs, flour and butter, and the result is a creamy, rich pie that goes from bowl, to pie shell, to the oven in moments. Then simply bake, chill and enjoy.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 8 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
- 1 teaspoon rum flavored extract
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup walnut halves
- 1 (9 inch) pie shell
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave chocolate until melted. Stir occasionally until chocolate is smooth.
Cream butter or margarine and sugar till fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add melted chocolate, coffee, and rum; mix well. Stir in flour and chopped nuts. Pour filling into pie shell, and decorate with walnut halves.
Bake for 25 minutes. Remove pie from oven, and cool completely. Refrigerate 1 hour before serving.
