    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    Hands down, the BEST cream pie recipe I've ever tasted! It was passed down from my mom, who got it from a neighbour while living briefly in Los Angeles way back in 1969. The chocolate variation has been the universal birthday 'cake' in my family for almost as long as I can remember. I've adapted it to be more microwave friendly and even less time-consuming than the original. (Cooking time is cooling time) In case you don't have a microwave or just want to try this on the stovetop, see my cousin CrystalB's Ultimate Chocolate Cream Pie for the method.

      Microwave for two minutes and stir.

      This would get a 5 star for ease but I thought it was grainy and not a smooth texture like I want in a cream pie. I am going to try it again an use corn starch in place of the flour. I believe that will take care of the graniness.

      Made this last night for dessert and it was not only easy but tasted great. I made the chocolate, I used 1/2 c. of milk chocolate chips and 1/4 c. semi-sweet. Paired with homemade whipped cream flavored with almond. Wonderful! Thanks for posting!
