Chocolate Cream Pie

Crust

Oreo Crumb Crust


Filling:

3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

3 1/2 tablespoons corn starch

1/8 teaspoons salt

2 1/2 cups whole milk

4 large egg yolks

2 tablespoons butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped


Prepare crust and set aside.


Combine sugar, cornstarch, and salt in medium saucepan. Whisk in milk and egg yolks. Place over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly. Keep stirring until mixture starts to boil and thicken. Keep over heat for 1 minute longer. 


Remove from heat and immediately stir in butter (1 piece at a time) and vanilla. Whisk in chocolate, 1/3 at a time, until smooth and completely melted. Slowly pour into the pie shell and smooth with spoon.


Press a piece of plastic wrap directly over the filling so that a skin doesn't form. Chill in fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Serve with whipped cream.
