Chocolate Cream Pie

This weekend I stumbled upon not one, but TWO keeper recipes, *woot*woot*

Not too long ago, I went on this crazy kick to find the perfect recipe for chocolate pudding. What set me off was the movie Julie & Julia where, in one of the first scenes, Julie comes home from an awful day at work and soothes herself by making chocolate cream pie.  

She says, "I love that after a day when nothing is sure and when I say nothing, I mean nothing. You can come home and absolutely know that if you add egg yolks to chocolate and sugar and milk, it will get thick. It's such a comfort". *sigh* A girl after my own heart!

Incidentally, this happens to be one of the few things my dessert-hating brother actually does like to eat so, I spent quite some time recipe-hunting and experimenting. 

I even tried the recipe from the movie but it just wasn't happening. Until Sunday afternoon. When a few ingredients, some heat and a little bit of whisking yielded, I kid you not, the smoothest, creamiest pudding I've ever had. 

The most exciting part (for me anyway) is that it's just thick enough to make perfectly, non-soupy slices of pie : ) 

So, Bro Bro, hurry up and get here already!  

p.s. The other keeper recipe is for fruit cake, stay tuned for the next post.

  4. It's just plain ol' Digestive Biscuits, like a cheesecake base. Normally, I make a proper pie dough type crust but I was feeling lazy and impatient : P The best part is it turned out better this way : ) Love when that happens!
