Most weeknights, dinner is a full production. Come to my house, and there is always a smorgasbord of two or three vegetable dishes, a protein, and whole grains or potatoes. So by the time it comes to dessert, I am exhausted.

But now that our precious daylight is gone by 5 o’clock, and the nighttime ahead involves copious amounts of homework, studying, and cyber-chatting, everyone seems to need dessert. And I mean the rich and gooey, lip-smackingly gratifying kind.

This pie definitely fits the bill without going full-tilt extravagant. Similar to the traditional Southern staple served each year at the Kentucky Derby, my version contains less sugar, butter and booze. It comes together in 10 minutes. Pop the pie in the oven as you are sitting down for dinner and it will be warm and irresistible by the time you finish. A little heavenly slice may be just what you need to get through the long nights ahead.

Be sure to try Berries with Chocolate-Coconut Fondue.
