Hot Fudge Pie



Hot Fudge Sunday ...
... for Sunday

This recipe makes two pies and that's a good thing. One will not be enough, I promise.

Super moist, this fudge pie is a southern tradition that goes back a long, long time. Some folks will put it into an unbaked pie shell, but I like it served without. Either way, the cooking time will be about the same.

Nutty, fudgy and oh so wonderful ... cut it while it's still warm and top each slice with a big dollop of ice cream and then, as pictured, pour on lots of warm hot fudge sauce. Take your time; this is sinfully pure pleasure. Enjoy!
