IngredientsChocolate Cream Pie

Crust:

  • 1 1/4 cups crushed chocolate graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten

Filling:

  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3 cups milk
  • 5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F

Filling:

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together sugar, cornstarch, and egg yolks until smooth. In a medium saucepan, cook milk over medium – low heat just until bubbles begin to form around edges of pan.
  2. Whisking constantly, slowly add one fourth of hot milk to egg yolk mixture.
  3. Whisking constantly, add egg yolk mixture to milk in saucepan. Increase heat to medium, and cook, whisking frequently, for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
  4. Whisk in all chocolate, butter, and vanilla until melted and smooth. Spoon mixture into prepared crust, and cover with plastic wrap, pressing wrap directly onto chocolate mixture to prevent a skin from forming.
