Anyone from the south (US) make pies? Chocolate pies?
I watched the movie "The Help" and loved it! but I was also inspired by the food. Yes I grew up eating some traditional souther fare... but I am from NW US sooo... it wasn't as common. However I was inspired by the chocolate pie (with out the special ingredient!). All the chocolate pies I have had were like pudding pies. I browsed the internet and came across a couple recipes and decided on one. i didn't like the texture as much either I baked it a hair too long, or it had one too many eggs.
for the filling I did:
1 1/4 cups sugar
5 Tbl cocoa
2 tbl flour
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup of butter.
It just felt to eggy to me (texture-wise). Maybe I will try two eggs and 1 yolk. I thought I would petition the group to see if any of you have made one or have a traditional recipe. I think the texture I want is like a silky smooth fudgy brownie... if that is possible.
