Charlie’s Fudge Pie
About 15 years ago, Charlie decided he liked to cook. He is a marvelous cook. This past year, he challenged himself to prepare Paleo cuisine changing the sugars, dairy and flours in his recipes. Our passions go well together. I like to make functional pottery to showcase his fabulous recipes.
This is my latest pottery design ,my personal favorite that I am using for our new dinner set. So far, I only have one place setting complete. I found that grey was a difficult glaze to find. I spray on Laguna’s French Grey. Then I decorate with wavy bans of Laguna’s Dark Grey, Blue Odyssey, and denim blue. I sling paint on as the last step, usually getting as much glaze on me as on the pottery. So the dinner set matches, yet no two pieces are identical.
FUDGE PIE RECIPE
1/4 cup cocoa
1 stick butter melted. Not margarine
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt
Regular Pet Ritz pie crust
1 cup of sugar
This is a recipe that Charlie got from a high school cafeteria cook. He starts with the regular Pet Rritz pie shell (not deep dish). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and put the pie crust in the oven for 5 minutes to pre bake the crust. Mix all ingredients and pour in the crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Let the pie cool before cutting. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
