- Preparation: 20 m
- Cook Time: 45 m
- Total: 65 m
- 1 store-bought piecrust (my fave is Trader Joe’s)
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1 3/4 cups of sugar
- 4 tbsp. cocoa
- 4 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 pint of vanilla bean ice cream
- 3 tbsp. fudge sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line crust with parchment paper and weight it with dried beans ; bake until dough is lightly golden and set, (about 10 to 15 min.) Remove pie and cool. (Preferably on a wire rack)
Lower oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
Filling: In a bowl, stir together butter, sugar, and cocoa until well combined. Fold in flour, eggs, and vanilla and mix until smooth (you can use a electronic or hand mixer). Pour mixture into prepared crust. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove pie from oven and cool completely on a wire rack to ensure even cooling. Place ice cream over pie and freeze until ice cream sets (think of it as another layer).
Optional: Drizzle with fudge sauce before serving.
