Ingredients[edit]

Pie Shell

  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter per pie shell

Chocolate Mousse

  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup rum


Procedures[edit]

Pie Shell Over low heat in a double boiler combine and melt the chocolate and butter. Remove from heat when melted and fully blended and leave in a bowl. Add in the sugar, egg, vanilla and milk. Further stir in the flour, baking powder, soda and salt. Spread the batter ~1/4" thick on a greased baking pan. Bake for 25 minutes at 325°. Remove from oven, break into pieces ~ 1" square, then bake again for 15 minutes. Let cool. Make crumbs by crushing these with a rolling pin, put these in a freezer bag first. This makes pie crust for 2 pies. Each pie uses ~1 1/2 cups of crumbs, mix in 1/4 cup of melted butter. Evenly press this into a 9 inch pie plate.

Mousse Filling In a double broiler melt the chocolate in a low heat setting, once melted remove from heat. Beat the eggs, add sugar. In another bowl whip the cream and rum. Blend the egg mixture and melted chocolate, then fold in the whipped cream in one third portions. Fill the pie shell proportionately.
