- 1 baked pie shell
- 2 C milk
- ¾ C sugar
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp flour
- 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°. In a medium saucepan cook milk, sugar and butter, stirring until sugar dissolves and butter melts.
In another mixing bowl add flour, cocoa, eggs and vanilla.
Add some hot milk mixture into the flour and cocoa mixture while whisking slowly at the same time. Add a little more mixture and whisk some more, making sure it is smooth and until well-combined.
Pour back into the pot over medium heat. Whisk briskly and cook until bubbly and thick. Pour into a prebaked pie shell.
Place in oven for 30 minutes, until crust is lightly brown and the middle is set. Cool completely and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Serves 6-8.
