Simple and delicious cream pie with only 7 ingredients!!!
- ½ c. cocoa
- ¼ cup cornstarch/or arrowroot powder (or ½ c. all purpose flour)
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 ½ c. sugar
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 2 c. milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat.
Cook until thick, beating it smooth.
Cream pies take some time to thicken, so stir… and stir (10-15 min).
Using a heavy bottom pan really helps.
Just keep it up until it thickens.
Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.
Put in the fridge to chill, add whipped cream if you like …Or use the left over egg whites for a meringue topping!
