Granny’s Cocoa Cream Pie




½ c. cocoa
¼ cup cornstarch (or ½ c. all purpose flour)
3 egg yolks
1 ½ c. sugar
¼ tsp. salt
2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla

How to make it


Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat on your stovetop. 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 add vanilla in after you take off the heat. Pour into a pre-baked pie shell. Put in the fridge to chill, add whipped cream if you like :0 Or use the left over egg whites for a meringue topping!
