Fudge Pie—Riley Adams


Hope everyone is enjoying cookie week here at Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen. I know I’ve got a whole bunch of new recipes for the family! I’m looking forward to finding out the winning recipe, too.

I hope y’all don’t mind a mid-week break from cookies. I’m doing something a little different today—still on the sweet theme, though. It’s a fudge pie. Very rich, very moist, and super easy to make. It’s really like a big brownie in a pie shell. :)

I was lucky to be able to snap a couple of pictures of the finished product before that teenager of mine came down the stairs. When he follows his nRileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb[3]ose into the kitchen, it’s always bad for my photography efforts!

Fudge Pie

2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1 stick margarine, melted
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. cocoa
1/4 c. flour
prepared pie shell, unbaked

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Mix melted margarine with the sugar. Beat eggs and vanilla into the margarine mixture. Add the vanilla. Mix in the cocoa. Mix in the flour. Pour mixture into pie shell and bake at 300 until set (about 45 minutes).


This is great with ice cream or a whipped cream on the top. Hope everyone has a sweet week…and don’t forget the Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen cookie week!

  1. Riley, that really is simple as, um, "pie." Nice to find an easy recipe during the holidays.

    Best and good writing!


  2. Fudge .... my husband loves fudge. This is a must try!

  3. Avery--Simple stuff for the holiday season!

    Shawn--Hope he'll enjoy it! I usually have most of the ingredients lying around, so it's a good thing to make in a pinch.

  4. Cotton Thistle--Hope so! It's popular with mine. :)

  5. Two of my favorite words: fudge and pie! I could easily devour a slice and lick the crumbs right off your pretty plate, Elizabeth!

  6. LOL, Lynn! I'd be fighting you for the crumbs. What a nice dessert for holiday guests -- assuming one can keep it away from teenagers.

  7. Lynn--Yeah, well, that pie is all gone now! Ha! Hungry Teenage Boy syndrome happened to it. :)

    Krista--*Maybe* I can find some crumbs!

  8. Hmm - I think I might be able to handle this one! Sounds yummy ...
