In Jamison’s family each holiday each person gets their own favorite pie. We’ve carried that tradition over and Jamison’s pie of choice is your basic chocolate pie. I came up with this version and few years ago. It is rich, creamy and oh so delicious. If it weren’t for the Pumpkin Cheesecake I might just have to make two! 😉
What You’ll Need:
1-9-inch pie shell, pre-baked
1/2 cup of unbleached all purpose flour
2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups of organic cane sugar
1 teaspoon of sea salt
2 cups of evaporated milk
4 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
2 tablespoon of butter
Pre-bake a pie shell and set aside. You can use either a store bought crust or make your own. It’s completely up to you. I used a store bought version today.
Sift or whisk together flour through salt into a large sauce pan. Slowly add milk and eggs yolks and whisk until smooth. Turn stove one and cook over medium heat stirring constantly until the mixture is thick.
Remove thickened chocolate mixture from heat and stir vanilla and butter until butter melts and mixture looks glossy. Pour chocolate mixture into your prepared pie shell. Refrigerate for 4 hours to overnight. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings to serve.
Notes: There are no notes for this one, but you knew that already! ;o)
