🥧🍫 Get ready for a delightful treat with my Granny’s Cocoa Cream Pie! This pie always steals the show at holiday gatherings, and the best part is, it’s super easy to make. Let’s get started! 🎉
📝 Here are the ingred*ents you’ll need:
🍫 ½ cup cocoa
🌾 ½ cup flour or ¼ cup cornstarch
🥚 3 egg yolks
🥄 1 cup sugar
🧂 ¼ teaspoon salt
🥛 2 cups milk
🌿 1 teaspoon vanilla
🧈 1 tablespoon butter
🥧 1 pre-baked pie crust
👩🍳 Let’s whip up this creamy cocoa cream pie:
In a pot on your stovetop, mix together the cocoa, flour or cornstarch, beaten egg yolks, sugar, and salt.
Gradually add the milk while stirring the mixture over medium-high heat.
Keep stirring until it thickens like pudding. This may take around 10 minutes, so be patient and keep whisking. A heavy-bottomed pan works best for this.
Once it’s thickened, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla and butter.
Pour the mixture into a pre-baked pie shell.
Place the pie in the fridge to chill.
If desired, top it off with whipped cream or use the leftover egg whites for a meringue topping!
This is an old-fashioned pudding-style pie, so there’s no need to bake or freeze it. The thickening happens while you cook it.
If you prefer a gluten-free option, cornstarch works perfectly.
If you’re making a deep-dish pie, you may want to double the recipe to fill it to the top. Feel free to experiment and use your own discretion!
