Chocolate Pie

My wife researched this recipe for her birthday pie. It is supposed to be a ringer for Marie Calendar's Chocolate Satin Pie. It is very easy to make and tastes pretty convincing.

The crust recipe worked really well and is definitely a keeper. Finn got to have fun pulverizing the graham crackers in a zipper bag with a rubber mallet.

Chocolate Pie

Before addition of whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

For the crust;

1 1/2 cup finely ground graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

For the filling;

1 1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 egg yolks
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels

To finish the pie;

whip cream
dark chocolate shavings

Preheat oven to 375°F. Stir together crust ingredients and press into a pie plate. Bake for 7 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack.

When the crust has cooled, whisk evaporated milk and egg yolks in a medium sauce pan over medium low heat until mixture is steaming but not yet boiling.

Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate morsels until the mixture is very smooth.

Pour into crust and refrigerate for 3 hours.

Just before serving, top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. (I neglected to get a pic of the finished product before we devoured it!)
