A 3 ingredient chocolate pie is a pie composed of a shortbread base and a dark chocolate and crème fraîche filling.

Due to the cost of cocoa and chocolate, this pie was considered until recently as a gourmet dessert. An early 1770th century British recipe book for “wealthy families” features a chocolate pie recipe that included cinnamon and lemon zest.

Easy and quick to prepare, tender and delicious, it is perfect for daytime snacks.
