BETH’S CHOCOLATE CREAM PIE RECIPE
SERVES 8

INGREDIENTS:
7 oz (196g) chocolate wafer cookies
5 tbsp (75ml) of melted unsalted butter
1 cup (240 ml) whole milk
1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
¼ cup (50 g) of sugar
1 cup (150 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup (150 g) bittersweet chocolate chips
3 egg yolks
1 tbsp (7 g) cornstarch
1 tsp (5 ml) vanilla
1 tbsp (15g) butter

Whipped Cream Topping:
1 cup (240 ml) heavy cream
2 tsp (10 ml) powdered sugar
½ tsp (2.5ml) vanilla extract

METHOD:
Pre-heat oven to 375F (190C).

Place cookies in a food processor and pulse until finely ground. Add melted butter and pulse until a wet crumb forms. Place crumbs in a 9” (23 cm) pie tin, working them up the sides with your hands and flattening the bottom with a measuring cup until a tight, crumbly crust forms. Bake for 6-7 mins until fragrant and set. Set aside to cool.

In a large mixing bowl whisk egg yolks and cornstarch until pale yellow and smooth. Set aside.

In a large sauce pot combine milk, cream, sugar, and chocolates. Heat on medium, whisking all the while until chocolate melts and a smooth liquid forms.

Measure out 1/3 cup of the hot chocolate mixture and add it to the egg mixture whisking to combine and tempering the eggs. Then pour the rest of the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and whisk to combine. Rinse out pot.

Pour the new chocolate mixture back into the clean sauce pot and cook on medium, whisking constantly until custard thickens and “cooks”. It’s import you do this for at least 5 minutes to cook off the bacteria of the raw egg. 165F degrees with a candy thermometer to be sure.

Add butter and whisk until smooth, add vanilla.

Pour chocolate mixture into cooled pie crust and refrigerate 4-6 hours, overnight even better!
2-3 hours before serving create the whipped cream topping.

In the bowl of an electric mixer combine heavy cream, sugar and vanilla. Whip until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a star tip.

Begin piping stars ½ inch from the crust so that you can see a little bit of the chocolate cream below. Pipe little stars all around pie in decorative fashion. Top with grated chocolate coming from bittersweet chocolate chip.

Place pie (uncovered) in fridge for another 2-3 hours. Cut and serve chilled!

    Hi Beth! Can you use 2% skim milk instead of whole milk?

    Beth, when you mentioned this was for mother's day I had to go back and watch your brunch menu videos because I love them so much! I'm sure you get asked this a lot, but will that format ever return? Those were my favourite style of video.

  3. love it

    It looks so tasty! I'd love to make tiny 'cupcake' versions (cup-pies?) so that everyone could have their own tiny pie goodness!

    Ooh, a chocoholic's delight! Definitely a fabulous, classic cream pie variety.

    I learned this from my mom when I was little boy. When entertaining she made two, one chocolate and one butterscotch because I don't like chocolate. I'm not sure what the crust was with the chocolate but the butterscotch crust was graham crackers. And don't forget what my late GMother said, "once you cut it the calories leak out".

    This looks amazing, however I have one question. Whenever I make something that has a whipped cream garnish, like this pie does, by the second day the whipped cream starts to deflate and become liquid again. I know that professional bakers use gelatin to make sure the whipped cream keeps its shape longer, but that changes the beautiful soft texture and taste of the cream. Do you have any tips on making the whipped cream last longer (without using gelatin)?

    Hi Beth! Thank you for sharing lovely recipes. 🙂 I wanted to know what substitute I can use for heavy cream? Where I live, we don't have heavy cream in grocery stores. We do get the regular cream but not "heavy cream".

    Hi Beth!, thank you so much for this recipe! I wish I had it earlier to take it at a Kentucky Derby Party, but there is always a next year 🙂 My question is, do you think it would be a good idea to run the chocolate mixture through a sieve before reheating? Thank you!
    Also, I had a couple of questions about your cheese souffle recipe that I have posted on that video. I would really appreciate if you could have a look at it. Thank you! 🙂

    Dayummmm this looks amazing! I've made chocolate tarts before but this one with the whipped cream looks lovely, I guess the cream would help counter the dark chocolate flavour too? 🙂
