This is an instance where the name came to me before the actual dessert! I had to think long and hard to decide what pie would be worthy of such a grand and elegant title. Once I had the concept—a deeply chocolate cookie crust; a creamy, mellow chocolate filling; and a stunning glaze adorned with gold leaf—it took a few tries to get all the textures and flavors just right. It was well worth the effort. What’s more, the chocolate wafers for the crust also double as first class cookies.
