This pie is made extra tasty with baker's chocolate and homemade whipped cream topping.

Ingredients

  • Pie:
  • 1 9-inch prepared graham cracker pie shell
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons flour (all-purpose)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks (slightly beaten)
  • 4 1-ounce squares Baker’s unsweetened chocolate
  • 2 tablespoons butter (unsalted)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • Topping:
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hershey’s cocoa

Steps to Make It

Blend the sugar, cornstarch, 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 chocolate squares, 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 pie and shell 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 the cooled pie.

Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of Hershey’s cocoa and serve.
