Chocolate Chess Pie

This rich, self-saucing, Chocolate Chess Pie has a homemade pie crust and can easily be made ahead with simple pantry ingredients like cornmeal, flour, eggs, chocolate chip morsels, unsweetened cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar.

It has a crisp, crackly top (similar to a French macaron cookie) and tastes wonderful served with powdered sugar, whipped cream, and ground cinnamon.
