Ok so let me first say that I've written about this before for our Pie Bakeoff Project
Having said that, (yes I'm going have a Curb Your Enthusiasm moment)
there really isn't an easier dessert you can make than this pie and still look like a baking rockstar....
And really, I'm here to make you look better...
This pie is from the movie "The Waitress" starring Keri Russell. Great movie and great pie....Even for the pie challenged this is an excellent and easy pie to make.
And for Valentine's Day you can't do better than to make your loved one a "Fallin In Love Chocolate Mousse Pie" - I mean how many pie recipes come with built in marketing for your Valentine's pleasure?
9-inch baked pastry shell (I substituted a graham cracker crust for those of us who are time challenged)
1 14-oz. can condensed milk (not evaporated)
2/3 C. water
1 (4 serving) pkg. chocolate pudding mix (not instant)
1 1-oz. square unsweetened chocolate
2 C. (1 pt.) whipping cream, stiffly whipped
In large saucepan, combine condensed milk, water and pudding mix; mix well. Add chocolate. Over medium heat, cook and stir rapidly until chocolate melts and mixture thickens. Remove from heat; beat until smooth. Cool. Chill thoroughly; stir. Fold in whipped cream. Pour into prepared pastry shell. Chill 4 hours until set.
