This pie tastes exactly the way it sounds: chocolatey and creamy. If you're a chocolate lover, this is a recipe for you. A certain someone (Steven) has been requesting this pie for about 6 months. I think that level of perseverance deserves a pie :)
Chocolate Cream Pie
From Ken Haedrich's Pie
Oreo Crumb Crust
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
1/8 teaspoons salt
2 1/2 cups whole milk
4 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
Prepare crust and set aside.
Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in medium saucepan. Whisk in milk and egg yolks. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until mixture starts to boil and thicken. Keep over heat for 1 minute longer.
|Try to not eat all the filling before you serve this pie :)|
Press a piece of plastic wrap directly over the filling so that a skin doesn't form. Chill in fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Serve with whipped cream.
