1/6 Photos of White Trash Chocolate Pie
Pot Scrubber's Note:
My mother has been making this recipe for over 20 years. The original recipe comes from the cookbook White Trash Cooking by Matthew Meckler. This has a dense texture and intense almost dark chocolate flavor instead of a creamy pudding type filling.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 4 eggs (you just need the yolks)
- 1 cup milk
- 6 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 1/4 cup hot water (I microwave it for 30 seconds in my measuring cup)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (yes... that is a TB not tsp)
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 unbaked pie shell (I like to use the Pillsbury unroll and bake pie crusts...)
- 1Beat egg yolks with half of the sugar and the melted butter.(melt butter in the micro for about 20 seconds -- you don't want it to be too hot or it will cook the egg yolks when you add it).
- 2Mix the other half of sugar with the cocoa and flour and add the 1/4 cup of scorching hot water. Mix with a whisk until smooth.
- 3Combine the two mixtures and mix thoroughly.
- 4Add vanilla and milk and mix thoroughly.
- 5Don't get upset if mixture seems thin. It will set after baking.
- 6Pour into an unbaked pie shell and cover the edges with foil or a pie ring to prevent the crust edges from browning excessively. Bake for 55-60 minutes at 325. It will still be a little "jiggly" bit it will set up nicely as it cools.
- 7Let cool at room temperature for a couple of hours and then put it in the fridge for a couple of hours to cool good and proper.
- 8Then -- serve well chilled with homemade whipped cream or just be white trash like me and use Cool Whip.
