Recipe by CrystalB
READY IN: 20mins




  • In top of double-boiler mix sugar, flour and salt.
  • Whisk in 1 cup of the milk until smooth.
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring briskly.
  • Continue to stir and let boil until smoothly thickened (about 2 minutes).
  • Remove from heat.
  • With fork, beat eggs with remaining 1 cup of milk.
  • Gradually stir into hot mixture.
  • Return to heat and bring to a boil.
  • Stir and boil until mixture thickens (about 1 minute).
  • Remove from heat and stir in margarine and vanilla.
  • Add 1/2 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and stir until melted.
  • Spoon into prepared pie crust and cool.
  • Serve with real whipped cream.
  • For banana cream pie, omit chocolate chips, and slice 2 or 3 bananas into bottom of prepared pie crust and top with the pudding.
  • For coconut cream pie, omit chocolate chips, and stir in 1/2 cup of coconut.
  • I've never tried this, but it's on my list of things to do: stir in 1/2 cup of peanut butter (or peanut butter chips, I guess) for peanut butter cream pie (omitting the chocolate chips).
