    Cooks4_6's Note:

    This is my husband's favorite dessert! It sounds like a lengthy process, but is easy to make and very yummy! I use a store purchased chocolate pie crust most of the time, but have the ingredients for the crust in case you want to home make it.

      LOVED IT! Hubby, who rarely goes on about a recipe, said "Wow, this is good!" It was easy to make too. I halved the recipe and used my half-size pie plate. The only change I made was to add a pinch of salt to the vanilla pastry cream. Thank you for posting! Made for Please Review My Recipe, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.
