Bam's Chocolate Cream Pie

Ready in 45 minutes

Delicious with those wonderful antioxidants from cocoa!

"I tried a different variation of this recipe for summer and it turned out very good. Instead of baking the pie shell, I used a pre-made graham cracker crust and topped the chocolate filling with Cool Whip in place of merangue. This variation reminded me of Smores, and was a cool and tasty summer treat. "

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 9 inch pie crust
1 cup Sugar
4 tablespoon Flour

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a 9 inch pie dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread the pie crust out evenly in the pan and press gently to bottom and sides. Flute the top of the pie crust.

Using a fork, poke holes about every inch in the bottom of the crust and also, the sides. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Set aside to cool and turn off the oven. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, flour, salt, egg yolks, and cocoa, stirring to mix well. Add enough of the evaporated milk to make a paste, stirring to check consistancy, and then pour the remainder of the canned milk into a two cup measuring cup. Add enough milk to make two cups (approximately 3/4 cup). Add the two cups of the milk to the saucepan along with the butter. Cook on medium high heat, stirring constantly until you get a consistancy that's like pudding or a little bit thicker. Allow the chocolate filling to cool completely before pouring into the pie crust. Top with merangue and bake at 350 until peaks are a light golden brown, or top with whipped topping of your choice. If you bake the merange, allow the pie to cool completely before cutting. If you top with whipped topping, refrigerate pie for about 30 minutes before adding the topping.

Notes

Instead of the Cool Whip for topping, you can use whipped cream or make a merangue out of the reserved egg whites.

Terrific old-fashioned pie. My gramma made a very similar chocolate pie. Thanks for sharing your version, it was simply delicious!

I also used unsweetened cocoa and frozen pie crust. It had just the right amount of sweet. Many chocolate pies are just too sweet to eat more than half a piece but this one wasn't!
