I have made this pie many times over the years. I have had it come out flat, runny or perfect. Todays pie came out perfect, and fluffy full. I think it is because I beat it with a hand mixer longer then normal. I am letting it cool in the oven with the door open. I don't add or change anything in this recipe, it is perfect the way it is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this pie previously and had problems with it filling up the crust and setting up for the recommended cooking time. So, I scaled up the recipe and added a square of chocolate, an egg, ( I make sure to beat the eggs well and let the chocolate mixture cool before adding them) 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 Tbsp butter, covered the crust edges with foil and baked for 40 minutes. It turned out perfect. I made a second one, and it turned out perfect as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Didn't work for me. I cooked an additional 5 minutes, and still goopy. I used less sugar and still too sweet. And the amount was too little for the crust, so it was a thin pie (not attractive), yet a slice was too much for any of my family to eat since it was so heavy and sweet. Sorry, as I usually trust most of Paula's recipes - she is usually right on for a great taste. item not reviewed by moderator and published
How is this NOT 5 star!?!?! I LOVE Paula. I'm a southern raised man and LOVE my southern food. It's cliche to say but some of the best dishes requires the least amount of ingredients, it's the memories, the love and the nostalgia that seasons/flavors the food. It reminds me of my grandmothers pie when I was a little boy. SUPER easy and literally all the ingredients are pantry dwellers. LOVE IT item not reviewed by moderator and published

AWESOME!!! Easy and delicious. Try garnishing with some whipped cream around the edge and a dollop in the middle. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was excellent! I used 3oz. bittersweet chocolate and used 3 eggs which made it a fuller pie. You do need to temper the eggs. The pie is so quick and easy. I warmed it up in microwave the next day for 30 sec. a slice. YUMMY! item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was wonderful! I used Baker's Brand sweet German Chocolate in one and semi-sweet chocolate chips in another. My family said the German chocolate pie was the best! They want this one every time we have chocolate pie from now on. Happy Pie Day! item not reviewed by moderator and published
