Swirled Pumpkin Chocolate Pie Recipe


No traditional Thanksgiving dinner would be complete without pumpkin pie. However, chocolate lovers may enjoy a change of pace in this Swirled Pumpkin Chocolate Pie, where there are swirls of yummy chocolate that complement the pumpkin in the filling. The pie is as easy to make as traditional pumpkin pie; all that is needed is to add melted chocolate and a little sugar to part of the filling mixture before baking. The result is plenty of pumpkin spice with enough chocolate to satisfy even the most serious chocoholic.

Although a homemade crust is best, ready-made pie crusts are always available; the refrigerated ones are quite good, and the frozen ones will do in a pinch. A freshly baked pie using either of the ready-made crusts is always much better than store-bought or frozen pies which are generally not fresh (they often sit on the bakery tables for up to a week or in the freezer for who knows how long) and made of mystery ingredients as well as preservatives.

8 Servings

1 15 oz. can pure pumpkin, not pumpkin pie mix
1 cup sugar, divided
2 eggs
3/4 cup light whipping cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1 9" unbaked pie shell

2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
  1. Preheat oven to 400.

  2. Mix the pumpkin, 3/4 cup sugar, eggs, whipping cream, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg until smooth; pour 2/3 of the mixture into the pie shell.

  3. Mix the remaining filling with the reserved 1/4 cup sugar and melted baking chocolate.

  4. Spoon the chocolate mixture over the pumpkin filling; use a knife to swirl.

  5. Bake 15 minutes; turn the oven temperature down to 350 and continue baking 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

  6. Remove from the oven to a cooling rack and cool thoroughly.

  7. Serve with sweetened whipped cream with a sprinkling of cocoa.
