1 unbaked pie crust [RECIPE]
1 (4 oz.) bar semi-sweet baking chocolate
1/2 c. butter
1 c. granulated sugar
2 large eggs
whipped cream or ice cream (optional)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 8-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Lay pie crust into the bottom and up sides of pie plate; set aside.
In a small saucepan over very small heat, melt butter and chocolate together, stirring continuously until smooth. Remove from heat and immediately add sugar; stir until well combined. Allow to stand about 3 minutes to cool slightly.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs lightly with a fork or whisk. Add slightly cooled chocolate mixture and whisk until well combined.
Pour over prepared crust and even out using a spatula. Place pie on the bottom oven rack and bake for 30 minutes. Move to top oven rack and bake for another 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream, if desired.
