Chocolate Candy Pie Shell
Why I Love This Recipe
(try this for chiffon-pie fillings)
This one is well worth the effort it takes to make!!
Ingredients You'll Need
1 (12 oz. ) pkg. semisweet chocolate pieces.
2 Tb. vegetable shortening
2 Tb. sifted confectioners sugar
Form pie shell by pressing 12" square heavy-duty aluminum foil in 9" pie pan. Cut off excess at rim. Carefully remove foil pie shell. Sprinkle in chocolate pieces and place on baking sheet in very slow oven (250ºF.) for 5 minutes. Remove and set aluminum shell in pie pan. Add shortening and blend with back of spoon. Add confectioners sugar; blend. Spread mixture evenly on bottom and sides of foil shell. Chill until well set.
Carefully remove foil and return chocolate liner to pie pan. Fill with chiffon-pie filling.
Note: Pie shell is crispy hard like coating on chocolate bonbons. It will soften some for easier cutting if allowed to stand at room temperatrue 20 minutes.
