Chocolate Brownie Pie- Hershey's 1934 Cookbook

This recipe is from Hershey's 1934 Cookbook. This is a 1971 reprint of the original book and has lots of interesting photos and facts about the 1930's: The average home consisted of 6 rooms, a bath, a one-car detached garage, at a cost of around $2,500. It says some of the recipes have been updated but others have not. It points out that back then there were no electric blenders and no-stick pans. This recipe sounds yummy but of course full of calories.
Chocolate Brownie Pie
3 eggs
1/3 cupful butter
1 1/2 cupfuls granulated sugar
3/4 cupful sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 squares Hershey's Baking Chocolate, melted
1/3 cupful milk
1 teaspoonful vanilla
1 cupful chopped nuts
Beat the eggs until very light. Cream the butter, add the sugar gradually, beating until light and fluffy. Sift the flour and the salt; set aside. Then add the cooled melted baking chocolate and the beaten eggs to creamed mixture. Add the flour mixture alternately with the milk to which the vanilla has been added. Then stir in the nuts. Pour mixture into a greased 9-inch pie pan. Bake in a moderate oven 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes. Serve the pie topped with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
