Give me Some Pie!

There are as many recipes for chocolate pie as there are choices of great chocolate.  This recipe is a marriage of all the best things about dessert…great ingredients and chocolate!  Unsweetened chocolate as called out in this recipe is also referred to as baking chocolate.

Ingredients

1-9 inch prepared graham cracker pie shell

1 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of corn starch

2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour

1/4 teaspoon of salt

3 cups of milk

3 egg yolks, slightly beaten

4 ounces squares unsweetened chocolate

2 tablespoons of unsalted butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla

Topping:

2 cups of heavy whipping cream

1/2 cups of sugar

1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder

Directions

Blend the sugar, corn starch, flour, salt, and 1 cup of milk together with a wire whisk. Whisk in the remaining 2 cups of milk. Cook over medium heat for 8 to 9 minutes, until the mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and whisk in the egg yolks.

Return to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in the unsweetened chocolate, butter, and the vanilla. Stir until smooth and all the chocolate is melted.

Cool for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour into graham cracker crust and refrigerate for 4 hours.

For the topping, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add the sugar slowly and beat until stiff peaks form. Spread onto cooled pie. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of cocoa powder over topping and serve.
