Easy Chocolate Walnut Pie
A Special Dessert That is Also Easy
Whenever I am looking for a dessert recipe to impress, Chocolate Walnut Pie is one that comes to mind. It's a bit different and unique than most of your apple, lemon meringue and pecan varieties.
First of all, this IS a decadent pie! You will want to slice this in small portions, with a dollop of whipped cream or a small scoop of ice cream on the side.
Second, this pie is very easy, but don't let that fool you, it is elegant and special for holidays and dinner parties too. The combination of chocolate, walnuts and butter in a flaky pie crust is extraordinary and the perfect dessert for any occasion.
