    Battle in Seattle's Note:

    I never knew how much I liked chocolate pie until I ditched the pudding mix and made it from scratch! This also makes a really wicked chocolate pudding, if you're ever so inclined.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    pie

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place oven rack in lower third of oven, and preheat to 400°F.
    2. 2
      Prick the dough lightly with a fork. Line with a sheet of buttered foil, buttered side down; weigh down the foil with dried beans, rice or pie weights. Place the pan on a heavy baking sheet. Bake until the sides are set, about 12 minutes. Carefully remove the weights and foil. Continue to bake, pricking any air bubbles with a fork, until cooked through and lightly golden, 8 to 12 minutes longer. Cool the pie shell thoroughly on a wire rack.
    3. 3
      Scald 1 1/2 cups milk and 1 cup cream in a heavy nonreactive saucepan over medium heat.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk the remaining 1/2 cup milk with the sugar, eggs and cornstarch until smooth. Add a little of the hot milk mixture to the bowl and whisk well. Repeat with more hot milk. Return the warmed mixture to the saucepan and bring to a boil, whisking.
    5. 5
      Boil, whisking constantly, for two minutes. Turn off the heat and add the chocolate, butter and 1 teaspoon of the vanilla; continue whisking until the mixture is smooth. Strain the custard into a clean bowl. Place a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the custard to prevent a "skin" from forming, and refrigerate until cooled to room temperature.
    6. 6
      Pour the custard into the cooled pie shell. Loosely cover and chill for at least two hours.
    7. 7
      Whip the remaining cream and vanilla until nearly stiff. Spread it over the pie with a spatula, swirling attractively. (Can add shaved chocolate to top if wanted.) Chill until serving.
    8. 8
      **Try my All-Butter Pie Crust (All Butter Pie Crust (Pastry)). It's easy and goes great with any pie--especially this one!
