Fudge Pie

Fudge Pie | Hannah & Husband

You may have seen my pies yesterday on Instagram.

Yesterday morning, I got up early to bake two fudge pies–one with nuts and one without. It was my dad’s 65th birthday, and fudge pie is a family favorite for any birthday, celebration, or Thursday afternoon. It’s one of those recipes (like Loverboy’s Specialty Cake and chocolate chip cookies) whose ingredients are always kept in stock for impromptu celebrations because it is rich and creamy.

Do you have a red plate for celebrations? This may need to get it’s own post later.

The pie is super simple to make but, as my mother and I discussed last night, it my take a couple tries in your oven to get the consistency just right. I’ve found that the trick is to let the outer half of the pie set but leave just a little jiggle in the middle. Then, let it “set” for at least an hour after baking.

  1. Your daddy enjoyed another piece of his birthday pie last night…using our Red Plate. I’m going to try your suggestion of “a little jiggle in the middle” next time because yours is much creamier than my pies using the same recipe.

    Thank you for your delicious additions to the picnic last night! (Maybe you can post your Pasta Salad recipe sometime.)

    Your momma loves you!

  2. I LOVE the special red plate and cherish the memories of getting to use it at your home 🙂 “When I grow up,” I will have to have a special plate for my family too! Happy Birthday to your sweet daddy and lots of love to your family! XOXO
