I baked something today for the first time in a loooooong time. So long, in fact, I had to actually look for sugar and flour because I had no idea where they were. That’s pretty serious business for me. Anywho, one of my BFF’s (Heeeey Nat!) asked if I had a chocolate pie recipe and turns out I do! It’s my great-grandmother’s and it is dabomb.com. After I sent Nat the recipe, I got to thinking and I had to make it for myself. Then I figured if I was eating it, you prolly wished you were eating it.
I also realized after Michelle posted a link about Aunt LuLu on Facebook that I hadn’t done anything in awhile to really tick her off. If giving away my great-grandmother’s chocolate pie recipe won’t infuriate the Aunt LuLu’s of the world, I don’t know what will.
The Best Chocolate Pie in the History of the World
Here’s what you need:
one baked pie shell (pastry)
whipped cream to top
1c whole milk
2 TBS rounded cocoa
2 TBS rounded flour
1 lump of butter (a TBS)
1 TBS vanilla
3 egg yolks
Mix it together and cook in a double boiler until it thickens, while stirring often. (This takes awhile 10-15 minutes) Let the custard cool, then pour into pie shell. Refrigerate until chilled.
You can put meringue on it and bake it a little more (obviously BEFORE you chill it) if you want. I just chill it and serve it with whipped cream, because the Hubster says meringue reminds him of calf slobber. For realz. That’s what happens when you marry a country boy.
