    Easy to make. i think it tastes like a brownie

    This is not a pie; it is a dry cake with no frosting. I guess one cannot expect something to taste rich and indulgent when it is composed mostly of egg whites. The batter tasted good though, so it might still have potential. IF I try this again I will cut the baking time in half and go from there, but I would probably still call it something else.

    I wish the chocolate flavor was a bit stronger, but overall not bad

    Huge disappointment. We threw it out after tasting it because there was no taste to it at all. In addition, it was very dry. Used the correct size pie pan and it still rose over the pie pan and burned on the bottom of my oven. I could overlook that if it had a chocolate taste. Don't make this.

    How disappointing. This dish has nothing to do with the traditional Mississippi Mud Pie. It was a dry cake-- not even as flavorful as a brownie. I served it to guests and we all had a few bites and threw it away. I wish I'd read these reviews before I'd made it! Definitely will not make again.

    Rich, chocolate taste, reminded me of a cake like brownie. I liked it that it wasn't too sweet. Instead of Dutch process cocoa, I used regular cocoa and added 1/8 tsp of baking soda. I served with vanilla ice cream.

    A tasteless brownie in a pie crust. The pie crust was good -- I will use the pie crust recipe again, but not the filling.

    Disappointing as a mud pie. What should be rich and somewhat gooey was light, delicate and firm. I didn't have time to make something else, so I enhanced with a thin pool of chocolate syrup on the plate, then topped with light whipped cream and chopped pecans. Good, but defeated the purpose of easy dessert. If this was labeled as a cake recipe the batter is excellent.

    I expected a smooth, creamy pie but this is more like a brownie instead. It's good, and chocolatey, but definitely not a "pie" in my opinion. Probably won't make it again as it's nothing special.

    Wanted mud, just got the dirt. Pulled the cake 5 minutes before estimated time because tester came out clean, but cake was still dry. Flavor was fine, but if I wanted chocolate, I'd find a better delivery than dry cake. I'm just glad I was able to serve the pie with ice cream. Not sure if I needed to combine the flour mixture more vigorously with the egg whites to deflate them--maybe that would've given me that muddy texture? As it was, I folded it all together gently until all the white streaks were gone. Final product looked just like the photo.

    We loved this when we ate it right out of the oven with icecream melted on top. But it dried out quickly and lost its flavor. And it isn't your classic gooey mud pie--it's like a cake or brownie like the others said.

    We love it. Yes, it's a bit dry like some of the other reviews have said. But, that's nothing a scoop of ice cream, Cool Whip or whipped cream won't cure!

    Dry and tasteless. This recipe is nothing at all like any Mississippi Mud Pie I've ever had. Some things you just can't lighten up with out shortchanging them. This needed more moisture, flavor and richness.

    Definitely seems to need less than 40 minutes. Even less than 36.
