Cold snowy first day of Spring and warm chocolate pie

Sometimes you just need a bit of comfort food. Food that warms your 'innerds. Food that causes your taste buds to spring alive. Something that will satisfy a craving you might be having.

And sometimes it is a raw, cold, rainy, snowy day and you find it hard to celebrate that it is the FIRST DAY OF SPRING! In the SOUTH!

Did someone not tell a "fixer" to fix us with a nice sunny warm day for this special day of the year? Guess not. Because what we got was.....

Yep! Cold. Rain. Snow. True it wasn't a lot. But really! It's SPRING!!!!

So I decided I needed that warm, sweet, comfort of a chocolate pie. Are you with me on this?
Pie is ready for baking

Fresh baked, hot from the oven!
