Fudge Cream Pie


I saw this recipe on Coleen's blog and when she stated how easy this was to make I was sold on trying it. It is definitely easy and delicious. I've made this twice already in the past few weeks and see me making this many more times in the future. My husband thought this was a perfect pie!!! My son said it was too chocolately (where did HE come from - nothing is ever too chocolately!). I agree with my husband - it is perfect. This is a great pie for chocolate lovers and perfect to go with Valentines day!

9" baked pie crust (I used a store bought one)
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 Tbs flour
4 Tbs cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups milk (I used 2%)
4 egg yolks
2 one ounce squares unsweetened chocolate
1 Tbs butter
1 tsp vanilla

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. In a medium bowl beat milk and egg yolks until smooth. Gradually stir the milk mixture into the saucepan that has the sugar mixture in it. Cook over medium heat (stir constantly) until mixture comes to a boil and stir for a minute or 2 until very thick.

Remove from heat and stir in chocolate, butter and vanilla and stir until butter is melted. Pour into pie shell.

Place plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the hot filling. This will prevent a skin from forming. Chill overnight. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings and serve.

I'm glad your family liked the pie (except for your alien child...who doesn't like serious chocolate?).

Too chocolatey? You mean there is such a concept? I refuse to believe it! This must have been wonderful if you have already made it several times. I need to get moving and try it too!
