Easter Desserts | Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie #BakeItEasy

I miss Easter dinner at my parents house. Now that we live in Nova Scotia, I rarely get back to Ontario to visit my family. I miss my family and spending time together over the holidays. My mom always made the best Easter dinners. We’d have either turkey or ham with all the fixins’ and for dessert, she would make her famous Butterscotch Meringue Pie. Oh do I miss that pie! 

I wish my mom was here this past week to try the delicious Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie I made using a Tenderflake Deep Dish Pie Crust. I think her Butterscotch Meringue now has some stiff competition! It’s sweet and chewy just like a brownie. Topped with a little whipped cream, it makes the perfect Easter dessert. It’s also really easy to make! Bridget was my helper in the kitchen and got involved in adding ingredients and stirring.

Confession time. I rarely ever make my own pie crust. I just find it so much easier to use a pre-made crust and honestly, they taste better than any I’ve ever made. My preferred brand is Tenderflake and I’ve used their pie shells for many recipes including my Pecan Butter Tarts. It’s just so much more convenient (and less messy!) to use their pie shells.

I discovered this recipe for Chewy Chocolate Fudge Pie on the Maple Leaf website. Their recipe also includes a Berry Cherry Sauce for the pie, but I decided to just use Whipped Cream as a topping. It was a hit!

    i like to make apple pie, in the fall i buy a lot of apples cut them up, put them in freezer bags with the spices and flour and freeze them. then when I go to make a pie I just take a pack out of freezer and they are all nice and soft for baking.

    Love making pies and since my favorite pie crust recipe was the one on the Terderflake`s lard box, buying the ready made crust was a no brainer. My favorite pies are home made wild raspberry. mmmmmmmm.

    When I was little the most incredible pie I ever had was saskatoon berry pie made by my dear grandmother. I would love to win these coupons and try making this sweet memory into a reality and enjoy the pie with my husband and kids!

    I’m not a chocolate person and this surely made my mouth water!! I saved the recipe and I”m going to whip it up this weekend to enjoy with my family for Mother’s Day!

    Ooh this looks delicious. My daughter and I would love it with a extra-large dollop of whipped cream. Thanks for the recipe. It looks easy enough and I love that it doesn’t use a lot of equipment — less to clean.
