* A rich chocolate pie -- I got this recipe from a 1983 calendar.
It's tried and true and delicious. It's also very simple to make. I
usually double the recipe, since one pie never seems to last long

it using chocolate almond liqueur instead of creme de cacao. It came
out OK, and had a hint of a nutty flavor in the background.
