IMG_2351

My wife made the most amazing pie this weekend and I wanted to share it with you. This pie costs almost nothing to make. In fact, I’d be surprised if you don’t already have all the ingredients on hand. It is a winner and it is as easy as, well, pie… Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked

3 egg yolks, beaten

1 1/2 cups white sugar

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 cups milk

1 tablespoon butter

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed

 

Directions:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together egg yolks and sugar. Mix in cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt. Add milk and stir gently.
  2. Pour mixture into a large saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until boiling. Remove from heat. Stir in butter or margarine and vanilla extract. Cool slightly, then pour mixture into pastry shell. Chill before serving. Garnish with whipped topping.
