Salted Fudge Pie

Found this recipe in this month's Paula Deen Comfort Food magazine.

Ingredients:

10 Tbsp butter, melted and divided
1 1/2 C crushed chocolate cookie crumbs
1 C sugar, divided
1 tsp salt
3 large eggs
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
1/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
Garnish: sea salt

Directions:

Preheat to 350*

In a medium bowl, combine 4 tablespoons melted butter, cookie crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and salt, stirring well. Press into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. (We used a premade Nabisco Oreo cookie crust instead. Just easier)
Reduce oven temperature to 300*

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, unsweetened chocolate (I melted in a mircowave double "boiler"), cocoa powder, remaining 6 tablespoons melted butter, and remaining 3/4 cup sugar, whisking until smooth. 

Pour chocolate mixture into prepared crust. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until center has set. Cool completely on a wire rack. Garnish with sea salt.
