GRANDMA’S COCOA CREAM PIE

Simple and delicious cream pie with only 7 ingredients!!!

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ c. cocoa
  • ¼ cup cornstarch/or arrowroot powder (or ½ c. all purpose flour)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2 c. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

 

METHOD

Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat.

Cook until thick, beating it smooth.

Cream pies take some time to thicken, so stir… and stir (10-15 min).

Using a heavy bottom pan really helps.

Just keep it up until it thickens.

Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.

Put in the fridge to chill, add whipped cream if you like …Or use the left over egg whites for a meringue topping!
