Chocolate Truffle "Pie"

Well it's called a "Chocolate Truffle Pie," but it's much denser than a pie, almost more of a cake-like texture and very rich! Tastes just like a truffle, only in a pie, and a little bit goes a long way!  Serve with a dollop of whipped cream or sprinkled with Confectioner's Sugar.  Original recipe from Baker's Chocolate.

10 oz. Semi-Sweet Chocolate
1 1/2 cup whipping (heavy) cream (1/2 cup for the pie, 1 cup for topping)
4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
Heat oven to 325°F. Microwave chocolate and cream in microwaveable bowl on high 2 min. or until chocolate is almost melted; stir until completely melted. Cool. Whisk in eggs, sugar and flour. Pour into 9-inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray (I use a 9" square baking dish). Bake 35 min. or until edge of pie is puffed but center is still slightly soft; cool. Serve topped with remaining 1 cup whipped cream.

Note - edges do puff up alot and the center will some as well.  As it cools, it sinks a bit and  pulls away from the edges of the pan.  Pie is very dense.
