Brace yourselves – pie season is coming! Technically, pie season is all year long in my house. My husband and I love a good cake, but we are pie people through and through. There are a million and one ways to get really fancy with pie recipes, and Pinterest is certainly overflowing with more beautiful magazine-worthy pies than you could shake a stick at. You won’t see me complaining about that one bit, because I’ve been known to pin a beautiful pie (or 800) to my dessert boards. However, my southern soul knows you can never go wrong with the classics, and this Old Fashioned Chocolate Fudge Pie is a fool proof way to serve a slice of sweetness any time of the year!
This is one of those recipes that I rarely have to go out and buy ingredients for. I always have flour, eggs, sugar, butter and cocoa powder on hand, and you can bet there’s always a pack of pie crusts tucked way in the freezer for when an emergency pie needs baking. Yes, that’s a thing. 😉
Looking back at my recipe archives, I realized that I don’t have nearly enough recipes to share with you guys for the upcoming Thanksgiving season. November is basically pie month, and we’re only 2 months away! Over the next few weeks, you’ll likely be seeing quite a few more pie recipes popping up in your inbox to help you plan your Thanksgiving menu. After all, you can’t take your Thanksgiving day nap without a slice of pie in your belly!
