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!
