Lincoln Del Chocolate Pie

Do you remember the Lincoln Del in Minneapolis? Apparently it first started as a bakery. At one time there were three of them, the last one closing in 2000. I remember the one on 494. They were famous for the omelets as well as their Matzo soup and desserts. Here is a recipe for their famous chocolate pie. You certainly need a stand mixer if you are going to make this one!


  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 square (1 ounce) dark chocolate
  • 3 squares (3 ounces) semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 baked pie shell
  • whipped cream
  • chocolate curls

Cream butter and sugar well; add chocolate, that has been melted with water in double boiler. Add eggs, one at a time. Beat after each one. Beat entire mixture for 20 minutes. Very important to beat long enough. Pour into pie shell. Cover with whipped cream and chocolate curls. Refrigerate.
