Chocolate Creme Pie

Ok, Eric, here it is….my mother’s chocolate pie we have been making for over 50 years. My son-in-law just called for my chocolate pie recipe and I discovered I had never posted the recipe. This is an old fashioned chocolate cream pie that is always a crowd pleaser, topped with whipping cream, you cannot find a better dessert to serve to family or friends. Very simple, very traditional and very very good.

2 1/2 cups milk

1 cup sugar

5 tables unsweetened cocoa

3 egg yolks

1/4 cup flour

1/2 teas salt

2 table butter

1 teas vanilla

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan.  Using a whisk, whisk all ingredients until egg yolks are broken up and turn heat under pan. Continue to whisk continually while cooking until the flour, cocoa and eggs are totally blended and all lumps are gone. Continue to stir until mixture begins to bubble and thicken. When it is thick, remove from heat and add 1 teas vanilla and 2 tables butter. Stir until butter is melted and combined. Pour into cooled baked pie shell.  Before serving, top with whipped cream.
