Ingredients

1
box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1/4
cup butter or margarine, melted
1 1/2
cups sugar
1/4
cup unsweetened baking cocoa
3
eggs

  • 2 In deep bowl, stir together butter, sugar and cocoa until blended. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat, using whisk, until mixture is blended and thickens. Stir in cornmeal just until combined; pour into crust.
  • 3 Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until pie is set and top puffs up and forms hard crust. Cool completely. Serve at room temperature with a dollop of whipped cream.
