Skillet sugar pie has been a favorite around here since the first day that I shared the recipe – it tastes like crème brûlée in pie format.
Today, I want to share a variation that chocolate lovers will embrace even more than the original: sea salt and chocolate skillet sugar pie! This chocolate sugar pie tastes like a cross between a decadent chocolate pudding and a rich chocolate mousse, with the addition of a buttery chocolate shortbread crust.
Jonathan and I fought over the crust parts when we shared the piece above this morning. The chocolate shortbread crust is no afterthought – it’s an integral part of the pie! The yellow spots you see are oats. I always throw some in my shortbread to give it a little texture.
Skillet chocolate sugar pie is a pie for Friday night dinners, Sunday brunches, and afternoon snacks. This is a pie that I will make for company and myself. It’s simple and spectacular.
Sea Salt and Chocolate Skillet Sugar Pie Recipe
I made this chocolate sugar pie in my new Finex skillet! I met the super nice folks behind Finex a few months back and they hooked me up with this baby. Thanks! Jonathan has been making breakfast in it almost every day. I had to steal it from him to make this pie. This skillet is not only well crafted, but it is gorgeous! It would make a great Father’s Day gift for any dad that loves cast iron cooking!
