I wanted to make a pie with shortbread crust, but I'm not sure what would be the best type of filling. Ideally, I'd like to do some kind of chocolate. Any ideas? TIA! icon_smile.gif

Myself, I'd do a bittersweet chocolate custard pie, as a foil to the sweetness of the shortbread.

Not everyone likes the intensity of dark chocolate, however, so it might not appeal to younger or less chocoholic folks.

Thank you! Both recipes sound delicious. I want to make this for my sister's birthday and she LOVES dark chocolate. icon_smile.gif
