Chocolate Pie Recipe

Do you love chocolate pies? Do you have trouble finding that one recipe that works for you? Look no more, this recipe is amazing. We use it all the time. My family loves it. Most requested for the holiday's as well.

Frozen pie crust
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons flour
dash of salt
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup + 2 tbsp sugar (separated)
2 cups milk
3 eggs (separated)
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
Allow the pie crust to thaw 5-10 minutes, then fork it and bake it in a 375-degree oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Check this out, you guys. 
Meanwhile, mix together the cornstarch, flour, salt, cocoa, 1 cup sugar, milk and egg yolks in a saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly. (Set aside the egg whites for now.) Once it starts to thicken and clump, add in the butter and vanilla and stir together. Pour the pudding mixture into the pie crust.
Look at that innocent little pie, sitting there, waiting to be devoured. Can you see that steam coming off the top? 
Now. Back to the egg whites. When they’ve reached room temperature, beat them with a mixer until they’re stiff, then fold in the 2 tablespoons of sugar. Pour the egg mixture on the top of the pie. 
Now pop the whole thing into a 350-degree oven for a couple minutes until the tops of the egg whites start to turn that beautiful golden brown color of perfection. Just watch it closely. It probably took about 10 minutes for me. 
At this point, you’ll likely be torn over whether to stare at it in all its beauty, or to scarf it. Let me help you solve your dilemma.
