Tofu Chocolate Pie

No one will guess the secret ingredient in this amazingly rich and creamy pie. In fact, you don’t even have to tell them it’s tofu until after they’ve finished the very last crumb.—Juliana Thetford, Ellwood City, Pennsylvania

    This would be vegan if the honey were substituted for maple syrup or agave

    Yes Cath Thong, you line the unbaked pie crust with foil and add dried beans, uncooked rice or pie weights so that when you bake it the crust doesn't shrink.Sue StetzelTaste of Home Magazine

    Fill with dried beans, uncooked rice or pie weights. I'm sorry I need to clarify. You mean after the pastry is place on a pie plate, we fill the bottom of the pastry with dried beans, uncooked rice?
