Black Bottom Chocolate Pie

We had a fun group get together last night for a little dinner party and I had several requests for this pie recipe. Well, Doug did.

That little weasel told everyone, that he made it! It took me about 10 times of hearing people commenting to HIM before I asked, "Did you tell them that you made it?"

Sorry dude, you may have stirred and pressed start on the microwave- but you did not create this beauty.

Oh, I didn't tell you? No whisking in a sauce pan- this is all microwave.

Black Bottom Chocolate Pie

1 package fudge filled oreo cookies
½ C. Chopped Pecans
1 C. White sugar
1/4 C. Corn Starch
¼ t. Salt
3 C. Milk, divided
4 Egg yolks, beaten
4 oz bitter sweet chocolate chips
½ C. plus 1 T. Cocoa
2 T. Butter
1 ¼ t. Vanilla

Crush enough cookies in a food processor to create a crust at least a ¼ inch thick. Sprinkle with pecans and bake until pecans become fragrant, ten minutes or less. Combine: sugar, cocoa, corn starch, one cup of milk and salt in microwave safe bowl and microwave for one minute. Add an additional one cup of milk and microwave one minute at a time (stirring between minutes) until mixture is thick with a fudge consistency. Stir in chocolate chips. In a separate bowl beat together yolks and one cup of milk and temper into chocolate mixture. Do this by whisking three table spoons one at a time into the yolks mixture. Then pour the yolk mixture into the chocolate bowl. Microwave one minute at a time stirring well between each for three additional minutes. Add butter and vanilla and mix until homogenous. Pour into cooled pie crust, cover and chill over night. Top with whipped cream and your choice of chocolate syrup, shavings, pecans or caramel.
