Chocolate Town Pie is my new favorite pie and I think it will remain that way! Yummy and so easy to make. I could put whipped cream on it but I want you to see how it looks then you can add the whipped cream if you like. It tastes like a pecan pie with melted chocolate chips in it. When I read this recipe it looked like to me that it would be a chocolate cookie in a crust but no… It is much better and has that soft gooey, yummy center like a Pecan pie.
Here is the recipe I got from a friend.
9 inch unbaked pie shell
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips (I used the big milk chocolate kind)
1 cup chopped pecans (you could use walnuts) but then, it wouldn’t taste like a pecan pie would it?
Prepare pastry shell; set aside. Heat oven to 350. In a smallmixer bowl cream butter, add eggs and vanilla. combine sugar and flour and add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into unbaked pastry shell.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden . Cool about one hour. Serve warm, with whipped cream.
This Chocolate Town Pie is as “easy as pie”! I can hardly wait to make it again. I won’t even wait for a holiday for this one.
I painted these wooden holiday blocks (cut from a 2×6) in a tan neutral color, before using the chalkboard paint on them so they would match my house, but be versatile and interchangeable blocks for all the holidays.
only 4 wooden letter blocks plus a base 2×4 and here is a list of the sayings I have come up with to use here.
Give – thanks

Have a Great Day!!
Kids Love this life-sized lovable turkey!
A friend of mine who is a preschool teacher gave me this idea and the pattern to Albuquerque Turkey for me to make with my grandkids in our “Grama School”
1-Take a big box and cover it with brown paper
2 draw a turkey head and have them color it or just cut the shape out of colored cardstock
3- draw and cut out a black hat out of black cardstock
4- make the wings
5- glue them together
6-reinforce behind the hat so it will stand up straight. You may use a piece of poster paper or a flat ruler you have around.
7- glue the head and hat and body on the box
8-Cut strips of brown paper bag for the legs
9- Cut out shoes and glue to legs and glue legs to the box.
Now you have a Thanksgiving friend. Teach the kids the song
It goes like this to the tune of Clementine
Albuquerque is a Turkey
And he’s feathered and he’s fine
And he wobbles and he gobbles
And he’s absolutely mine.
He’s the best pet that you can get.
Better than a dog or cat.
He’s my Albuquerque turkey
And I’m awfully proud of that.
