Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

The only kind of chocolate pie I had ever had was the kind made with pudding from a box. Homemade chocolate pudding has a much richer, more chocolatey flavor. This pie is SOO good. I didnt make the meringue for this because Jeremy doesnt like it.



1 pillsbury pie crust

1 cup white sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

pinch of salt

1 heaping tbsp cocoa powder

2 cups milk

3 egg yolks

1 tbsp vanilla

2 tbsp butter

Bake crust as directed on package. Let cool.

In med-large saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch, salt, and cocoa together using wire whisk. Add milk. Over med heat, cook, stirring constantly until heated through. Temper in egg yolks.  Stir constantly until thick. Add in vanilla and butter. Let cool. Pour into crust.
