Happy Pi Day

In honor of Pi Day, I am making two pies. One a Shepherd's pie to honor St. Patrick and one that my son Patrick likes.

Individual Shepherd's pies ready for the oven.
And I'm making a chocolate chess pie because it is one of our favorites.  Here's a recipe for the Angus Barn chocolate chess pie.
  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 2 squares bakers chocolate (semi-sweet)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Dash of salt
1. Melt butter and chocolate, mix with other ingredients, which have been blended together.
2. Pour into a pie shell and bake 35 minutes (no longer) at 350 degrees.
3. Top with whipped cream (or not).

 Happy Pi Day (Pie Day) everyone.
