Granny’s Cocoa Chocolate Cream Pie

Here is a great old hard to find recipe~

Granny’s Cocoa Chocolate Cream Pie

It’s simple and tasty. This really was a simple desert often used during the 30’s and 40’s.

  • 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!
