|I'm reaching waaaay into the archives with this recipe. It's one I definitely haven't made in a long time, so you won't find many vivid adjectives to desccribe this pie, but trust me it was GOOD! If you're a regular around here you know I've got a killer sweet tooth, and I'm a serious chocaholic. I don't experiment with the lower fat, more guiltless versions of recipes as much as I should, but you'll catch a few guiltless recipes around here from time to time. This yummy chocolate pie is one of those recipes. |
I found this recipe for Low-Fat Chocolate Fudge Pie on the Cooking Light website. I keep the recipe as written, with one minor change - instead of whipped cream, I wanted to top the pie off with some delicious, fluffy meringue. I love whipped cream, but the meringue was absolutely the perfect touch.
Low-Fat Chocolate Fudge Pie
1/2 (15-ounce) package refrigerated pie dough (such as Pillsbury)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
1/3 cup light-colored corn syrup
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1 cup frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed*
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa (optional)
*Substitute whipped topping for 1 recipe meringue (see recipe below)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Fold edges under; flute. Place pie plate in freezer until ready to use.
Combine brown sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa, and flour in a large bowl. Combine milk and next 5 ingredients (milk through egg whites); stir with a whisk until well blended. Add milk mixture to brown sugar mixture; stir until combined.
Pour mixture into crust. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until just set. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature. Cover; chill at least 4 hours. Spread whipped topping evenly over filling; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cocoa, if desired. (Or top with prepared meringue.)
