Fudgy Chocolate Walnut Pie is the perfect combo of a brownie and a pie all in one!
This post is sponsored by the California Walnut Board but all opinions are my own.
Are there certain foods that when you cook with them or eat them they remind of you a certain person? I am that way with walnuts. They always remind me of my Grandpa Schenck. We lived in Wisconsin growing up and every summer we would take the train out to California to spend a month or so with my mother’s parents. I remember sitting on the back porch of grandpa’s house in San Gabriel shelling walnuts. I can never cook with or eat a walnut without thinking about my grandpa.
This fudgy chocolate walnut pie is full memories for me and lots of chocoalte and walnut goodness. The chocolate is fudgy and gooey but it’s not runny. A layer of toasted walnuts on the bottom of the pie adds some nice crunch and flavor to the pie and helps the chocolate not to be too overwhelming.
I used a store bought pie crust but you can always make your own. I love my Perfect Pie Crust recipe.
Let the pie cool for an hour or so so that it is easier to cut and serve. Of course, a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream would be perfect on this pie!
