S'mores Pie

Here is a great way to have the taste of a s'mores in a great looking pie! Bring this to your next gathering and it will be an instant dessert fan favorite.

Full time 1 1/2 hours (does not include full cooling time)
Makes 9" pie

The needs-

1 9" graham cracker pie crust, homemade or store bought

3 eggs
4 oz dark chocolate, bittersweet can be used if desired
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder

1 1/2-2 cup marshmallow cream

The know-

In a large bowl combine sugar, eggs, and vanilla.

To prepare filling start by chopping chocolate coarsely.

Place in a microwave proof bowl (or double boiler) and melt in 30 second increments, stirring well after each until smooth.

Fold melted chocolate mixture into sugar mixture.

Add in brown sugar, salt, and baking powder.

Add in flour.

Pour into pie crust.

Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes, middle should feel set it lightly touched.

Carefully remove from oven and spoon marshmallow cream over top, it will be a tad tricky to get it to spread so spooning and letting it melt together works great.

Return to oven and bake 5-10 minutes or until cream begins to brown at the peaks, keep a close eye on it.

Remove from oven and let cool on stove top 10 minutes.

Move to a wire rack to allow to finish cooling completely.
