Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

 Do not leave this pie hanging around.Actually, its best to serve this pie when you have exactly 12 people to feed. 12 polite people who never ask for seconds. Oh yeah, also DO NOT ever attempt to taste the chocolate cream while you are making it. Why, you ask? There may not be a pie to speak of when you are done. 
So, moral of the story is.....
make this pie today, and you'll be happy you did!

Fudgy Chocolate Cream Pie

  • 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked (recipe to follow)
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or soy milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. In a medium bowl, beat milk and egg yolks until smooth. Gradually stir into sugar mixture. Stir constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens and comes to a full boil. Boil and stir for one minute.
Remove from heat and stir in chocolate, butter and vanilla. Stir until melted.
Pour into pie shell. Place plastic wrap over filling to prevent skin from forming and chill for several hours. Top with meringue or whipped cream and chocolate curls if so desired. Pie can be frozen, just make sure to defrost for at least 20 minutes before serving. 

Pat-a-pie Crust
1 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 stick margarine, melted
Mix everything together, and pat into a 9 inch pie pan. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before filling.


  1. This might be my second post since I'm not sure if my first one went though, but YUM YUM YUM!! I think even I can make this! Question though....wouldn't a Graham Cracker Crust thing work?

  2. Also, can we switch the butter for margerine?

  3. Yes and yes! Graham cracker crust is totally fine, and I also used margarine. Enjoy :)

  4. Looks delicious. I like your new background for the blog page.

  5. Is that a glaze on top of the pie in the picture?

  6. Nope. its just that the top of the pie was moist when I took the picture from condensation.
