Joan Totton's favorite dessert for the Christmas season has a nutty, chewy crust and dark chocolate filling that's not too sweet. "I'm proud to serve it, and my guests love the rich taste," reports the Stanfield, Oregon cook.
Warm days warrant a cool dessert like this frosty and refreshing pie. The raspberry sauce combined with rich chocolate and ice cream make each slice irresistible. All eyes will light up when you pull out this pleaser!
This rich and fudgy cream cheese pie should serve eight, but it never does because so many folks request a second slice! I've been cooking more than 60 years...and this is the best chocolate pie recipe I've found.

A friend gave me this divine recipe after I asked how she managed to put together such an elegant pie after a long day at work. Prepared cookie dough, marshmallow creme and a little instant coffee make it a breeze to assemble.

Rich and oh-so-chocolaty, this silky pie is a cinch to prepare. The mouthwatering filling and flaky crust are an unbeatable combination that's sure to make this pie one of your family's favorite desserts, too.—Nancy Horsburgh, Everett, Ontario
Don't look for the meringue on top of this deep-dish chocolate pie- it's on the bottom! "I used meringue to make the crust," jots Florence Oblander from Hillsboro, Kansas. "This has been a favorite dessert for many years."
