Chocolate Meringue Pie

It's what's for supper...
but I will have to post all the details

I hate when this happens!!     

But today, I have things back in order and it has been a long haul to recover many lost recipes, fonts, etc.

Double Chocolate Pudding

Chocolate, pudding

6 extra-large egg yolks
1/2 c sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 tb cocoa powder
  pinch salt
2 c milk
1 oz semisweet chocolate; chopped
2 tb unsalted butter
1 1/2 ts pure vanilla extract
2 tb heavy cream


Directions: Beat the egg yolks and sugar until light yellow and thick in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, on medium-high speed. On low speed, add the cornstarch, cocoa powder, and salt. Bring the milk to a boil in a medium saucepan and, with the mixer on low, slowly pour the hot milk into the chocolate mixture. Combine well, then pour the mixture back into the pan.

Cook the mixture over low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk or wooden spoon, until thickened. If the mixture begins to curdle, remove it from the heat and beat it vigorously with a wire whisk. Remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate, butter, vanilla, and heavy cream, and mix until the chocolate and butter are melted.

Pour into serving bowls. Place plastic wrap directly on the top of the pudding, and chill thoroughly.

This recipe makes enough for a 9" pie pan or a 10" tart pan.

I go crazy when my computer acts up. On the other hand, if I could nibble on this pie while I solved the problem, maybe it wouldn't be so bad.

Mr. Bill, glad things are back in order! Wish I had been invited for supper at your place; your pie would've been great! I'll just have to make it myself. Yum!!!
