Miss E is quite the cook when she chooses to be. One of her favorite things to make is Honey’s chocolate pie. Named after her great-grandmother, this is a family favorite. She has also begun making it for potluck dinners at church. She made one yesterday for church and it was gone before I got to the dessert table.
Want to make it yourself, now that you have drooled over the computer keyboard?
Here’s the recipe –
- 1 prepared pie crust (this can be a baked pastry crust or a graham cracker crust – both are good)
- 4 T flour
- 1 C sugar
- 4 T cocoa powder
- 2 egg yolks
- dash of salt
- 2 C milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp butter
In a pot, combine the flour, sugar, and cocoa powder. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolks, salt and milk. After stirring the eggs and milk together well, add it to the dry ingredients in the pot. Cook it on the stove top over medium or medium high heat. Stir constantly until it thickens. Put in the vanilla and butter. Stir. Let it cool. Pour into the prepared pie crust. Refrigerate until serving. Add whipped cream (Cool Whip) and chocolate curl garnishes if desired prior to serving.
Enjoy this yummy, super-simple treat.
