This luscious ~ creamy ~ dreamy ~ chocolate goodness is aimed at satisfying your chocolate cravings. This chocolate pie is a crowd pleaser with everyone wanting seconds. The chocolate is resting on a flaky, melt in your mouth crust, topped with a fluffy meringue.
I made a Mini Chocolate Pie with the left over pie crust.
Frozen pie crust or homemade
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons flour
dash of salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar (separated)
2 cups milk
3 eggs (separated)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Allow the pie crust to thaw 5-10 minutes, then fork it and bake it in a 375-degree oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes
Meanwhile, mix together the cornstarch, flour, salt, cocoa, 1 cup sugar, milk and egg yolks in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. (Set aside the egg whites for now.) Once it starts to thicken and clump, add in the butter and vanilla and stir together. Pour the pudding mixture into the pie crust.
