Chocolate pie is my husband’s (“J’s”) favorite dessert. This is what he wants for his birthday every year. The filling for this one is a wonderful chocolate custard made with unsweetened chocolate, flour, sugar, milk, butter, eggs, and vanilla. The secret is to use more chocolate than most recipes call for and to make 1 1/2 to 2 times the amount of filling to ensure a thick chocolate custard layer. I leave it to you whether you prefer to layer on the whipping cream or make a meringue topping at this point. Both are good, but J prefers whipping cream with a few chocolate shavings on top.
It just tasks a little time and whisking over a double boiler to make this pie. You will also be happy to learn that this pie still tastes good when made with skim milk instead of whole milk, so you can make a slightly healthier version if you wish and still have a yummy dessert.
