Help! I've lost my favorite Ina Garten chocolate pie recipe.

I used to make this recipe every year for Christmas. It's an Ina Garten recipe for a chocolate cream pie - the name escapes me. It had a chocolate cookie crust and used chocolate melted on a double broiler with butter. I cannot find it on the internet and I'm wondering if any food52 folks might have it. Thanks for any help.

This is the recipe I always use. I realize it's not Ina, but it's Anne Willen and she and Ina are friends!

Dona that looks delicious; saving it!

Dona - thank you! This is very close to Ina Garten's recipe. It really is a fantastic pie!

I ended up making the Epicurious recipe you recommended and it was a hit! It tasted just like the Ina Garten recipe I had made in the past. Thank you for recommending it!

Trena, I'm so glad it worked out!

Trena - I have all of Ina's cookbooks except for Cooking for Jefferey. If no one posts the pie recipe you're looking for, respond back and I'll go through all the cookbooks for you.

Thanks, Chops! The recipe Dona posted from Epicurious is very close, but I'd really appreciate it if you wouldn't mind looking through your Ina Garten cookbooks. Thank you!

Trena, is it a chocolate wafer crust with a pudding like filling?
TH December 6, 2016
Yes, I think that's it!

Can't help you with Ina's recipe, but Jenn Siegal of has a yummy chocolate cream pie that I have made several times.

Is it the chocolate pudding cream tart from her book how easy is that?
TH December 6, 2016
No, I don't think so. Thank you for inquiring!

Would this be it?

Thank you, Lisanne! No, that's not it. It has a dark cookie crust and there are no nuts. As I recall she often put up recipes on Food Network for a limited time due to the fact they were also in her cookbooks. I got it off of Food Network, however I'm wondering if it's from one of her cookbooks. It's more of a silk pie and I can't recall the name of it.
