Chocolate Fudge Tart


You may or may not have been wondering where I have been.  For those who were wondering, the last few weeks have been busy.  Busy, is actually an understatement.  We finally moved into our house and my family came to visit the week that we moved in.   Along with moving and having out of town visitors, I had two birthday parties I had to plan.  Although, I did make sure to find time to bake.

This recipe comes from a book that my manager gave me called Desserts: A collection of over 100 essential recipes.  I absolutely love all the recipes in the book and I am determined to bake them all. 

The Chocolate Fudge Tart or as we’ve been calling it, Brownie Pie , is pure decadence.   Don’t forget to have a big glass of ice cold milk with your slice of pie.



Chocolate Fudge Tart

Desserts: A collection of over 100 essential recipes.


1 ready-made unsweetened pie crust

5 oz. semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
6 tbl. butter, cut in cubes
1 3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla
6 eggs, beaten


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Roll out pie dough on an 8 inch tart pan. Prick the bottom of the pie lightly with a fork, then line with parchment paper and fill with dried beans. Bake in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes, or until the dough no longer looks raw. Remove from the oven, take out the beans and paper, return to oven and bake 10 minutes more, or until the dough is firm. Let cool and reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.

To make the filling, place the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl and melt over a pan of gently simmering water. Stir until smooth, then remove from heat and let cool. Place the sugar, flour, vanilla, and eggs in a seperate bowl and whisk until well blended. Stir in the butter and chocolate mixture.

Pour the filling into the pastry shell and bake in the oven for 50 minutes, or until the filling is just set. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
