The recipe for chocolate and lingonberry pie

I know, this is way off topic for this blog, but since I mentioned this pie in a blog post last week, I've been getting so many requests for the recipe that I just had to post it! And the other recipe, the one for raspberry fudge pie is coming soon too...

So here it goes, the recipe for chocolate and lingonberry pie:

Pie crust:
100 g butter
1/2 dl sugar
2 dl rolled oats
1 1/2 dl flour

1 1/2 dl cream
50 g butter
1 1/2 dl golden syrup
200 g dark chocolate, around 40% cocoa
1 1/2 dl lingonberries

Preheat the oven to 200°. Melt the butter. Add sugar, oats and flour. Mix into a dough. Put the dough in a pie form, about 24 cm in diameter. Bake the pie crust in the middle of the oven for 8 – 10 min until it has a nice colour.
Bring cream, butter and syrup to a boil. Let simmer on low heat for around 10 min. Remove the pot from the heat. Break the chocolate into little pieces and add to rest of the ingredients. Put it back on the turned off stove using the afterheat to let it melt totally, while stirring, until it's very smooth and shiny. Pour the chocolate sauce into the pie crust and sprinkle with lingonberries. Put in the fridge to set for at least 5 hours, or over night. Serve with softly whipped cream. This pie is very filling, so this will make 12-15 pieces.

    Oh, that looks so good! Unfortunately I don't know if we can buy fresh lingonberries in the US (I've only seen them in jarred preserves, with sugar)...

    Anna, that's too bad! I usually use frozen lingonberries, it works just fine, perhaps you can find some too? Otherwise i think the pie would be pretty good with raspberries as well, as long as they are quite sour. You don't want to add any more sweet stuff to this, the chocolate filling is so rich it needs somehing sour to balance the tastes.

    MsUnreliable, lingonberries are a swedish berry, small and red and very sour, and I don't think they're that well known outside of scandinavia, so don't feel bad, i'm sure there are plenty of people who don't know them. :-)

    To everyone else, bon appetit! i'd love to hear what you thought of the pie if you try it!

    oh, it just occured to me, you can substitute the lingonberries with cranberries, that would probably taste just great!
