Scale

Ingredients

1 pie crust

1 1/4 cup sugar

1/3 cup cornstarch

4 large egg yolks

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 tablespoon vanilla

6 ounces dark chocolate (chopped)

Topping:

Whipped cream

Chopped dark chocolate


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Put the pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish, trim excess, and crimp the edges.
  3. Line the pie crust with parchment paper and fill it with beans or pie weights.
  4. Bake the crust for about 20 minutes and then carefully remove the parchment paper and weights.
  5. Continue baking the crust for another 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool at room temperature.
  6. Whisk sugar, salt, and cornstarch together in a medium-size saucepan.
  7. Add heavy cream, milk, and egg yolks. Whisk to combine.
  8. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it starts to bubble around the edges and the pudding thickens.
  9. Remove from heat and stir in the dark chocolate. Add butter and vanilla as well. Stir well until chocolate and butter are melted and the mixture is smooth.
  10. Pour filling into the prepared crust and smooth the top.
  11. Chill in the fridge for at least 6 hours.
  12. Top with whipped cream and chopped chocolate before serving if desired.

Notes

  • When heating the pudding, be sure to whisk constantly so as not to burn it. Continue stirring until desired consistency is achieved.
  • Chilling the pie overnight is recommended.
  • Crushed nuts would be good for topping too.
