Have no fear though, my mother-in-law to the rescue with a recipe that doesn't call for cream of tartar. In fact, she whipped up her Chocolate Fudge Pie on a last minute request without so much as a bat of an eye. All ingredients for this pie were already in her pantry. Oh yes, this was going to be my kind of recipe!
Not twenty minutes later, a glorious chocolate aroma filled the house. I couldn't wait to get my fork into that pie! When my MIL cooks, she's not messing around. Her recipes are always the ideal taste of Southern cuisine.
Her Chocolate Fudge Pie didn't last long, and you're going to want it topped with a heaping scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Even my husband, the usual chocolate hater, ate up his fair share of pie.
It doesn't get better than an easy Chocolate Fudge Pie...said any person ever. Try it out this Thanksgiving; it's the perfect ending to a turkey feast!
Baker's Tip: Holiday baking people! 'Tis the season to stock up on all your baking needs so you can throw together any last minute recipes. Don't shy away from the middle aisle stores fill with Holiday baking specials. Most importantly, if you don't see the item you need then go find the baking aisle. Chances are they have much more in stock, just not in the holiday baking area! My go-to baking stops are Michaels, Kroger and Wal-Mart.
