Classic Chocolate Cream Pie

Jana here with a delicious dessert recipe!  We've all tasted a chocolate cream pie before, and if you're like me, wanted a second slice!  I was going to be bringing a dessert to a dinner we were having with another family, and something brought 'chocolate pie' to my mind!  I found this recipe through Pinterest, and it did not let me down!!  Our friends and my family all loved the pie, and how rich and yummy it was!  This was not difficult to make, and worth the effort!  Even though I can definitely improve on my meringue skills (as you can see in the picture), I like to have something to work towards!  Oh, and I wish I had a picture of the chocolately inside to show you, but since I was making it to take to a dinner, I don't have one. Trust me when I say it's delicious!

Classic Chocolate Cream Pie

Frozen pie crust
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons flour
dash of salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar (separated)
2 cups milk
3 eggs (separated)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoons vanilla

1. Let the pie crust thaw for 5-10 minutes, then pierce it with a fork several times. Bake it in a 375 degree oven for about 10 minutes. (until golden brown)

2. In the meantime, mix together the cornstarch, flour, salt, cocoa, 1 cup sugar, milk, and egg yolks in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. (save the egg whites) 

3. Once it starts to thicken and clump, add in the vanilla and butter, stirring until combined. Pour this mixture into the pie crust.

4. When the egg whites have reached room tempterature, beat them with a mixer until they're stiff. Next, fold in two tablespoons of sugar.  Put this meringue on top of the pie.

5. Next, put the pie into an oven heated to 350 degrees. This is to brown the tops of the meringue. You will want to watch this closely. It will take approximately 10 minutes.
