Mona's Chocolate Pie



This is another of my Mother in laws tasty creations. We did not get this till we had been married some time as she worked on this recipe for a long time (10 years ?)and wanted it to be her secret. See the story is that this came from a restaurant called Johnny Rays Bar B Q and they had this chocolate pie to die for. It was a secret recipe at the time and mother in law decided to try to duplicate it. Well years later the restaurant was sold and the recipe finally printed in the paper. Mona was off by one egg. she had an extra one in hers. Now mother in law made her own pie crust but we cheat and use a bought one.
1 cup sugar
4 Tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 teaspoons cocoa powder
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 Tablespoon butter
Mix dry ingredients. Add milk and cook in top of double boiler until thick. Beat egg yolks with a fork and add about 1/2 cup hot mixture to eggs to warm them. Pour egg mixture back into pot and cook until consistency of pudding. Add vanilla and butter.
Pour into cooked pie shell. Cool. When cool top with whip cream.

My hubby is the chocolate pie maker at our house.

LOL...or I should say chocolate bowl maker, he knows I don't like pie crust, so he puts my filling into a bowl.

Looks delicious and now I'm craving some chocolate.
