This was my mom's "special" pie growing up. We all loved it and it was fancy enough to bring to dinner parties.

Absolutely wonderful. I actually used 2 ounces of chocolate instead of 1 1/2 (there was a small incident...) and it still turned out beautifully. I think part of what made it great was the mystery of whether it would turn out like a cake, a custard, a pie, or what.

This looks exactly like the pie recipe my Mom has from my Grandmother. It's tradition in our family to make a pumpkin pie and Colonial Innkeeper's for our Thanksgiving dinner. It has a wonderful, almost cakey texture. The chocolate on top should sink to the bottom of the pie, a suprise layer of rich chocolate. It's superb with a dollop of whipped cream on top of it.

Made this as a request from a co-worker, his mom used to make it for special occasions and had passed away a few years ago. Great pie!! lesson learned though...USE A DEEP DISH PIE SHELL!

I did not care for this recipe AT ALL. More like cake. The batter spilled over on both pies and made a mess.
