Because I was low on time (and sick as a dog), I made a chocolate cookie crust instead of using a pastry shell. I took some of the other reviewers suggestions and doubled the filling. I'm glad I did, because the pie would have only filled the pie shell just under halfway if I hadn't doubled it. It really was a simple pie and the outcome was a very rich and decadent pie that was almost truffle like in mouth feel. We absolutely loved it, my husband ate two pieces back to back. Excellent pie. I think this could also make a good mousse pie next time if I was to fold in sweetened whipped cream instead of doubling the filling. NOTE: I'm sure if I had waited five minutes between each egg, my filling amount would have been perfect. That being said, I think my oldest son did a bang up job on his own and the results were great for us even if the original filling amount wasn't enough for us. Next time, I'll make this myself and see what the outcome is, then re-review.
