My students made this

I teach 7th & 8th grade FMS (Family Consumer Science). My students made this pie and absolutely loved it! We made 24 pies, and only one group had problems with 'setting'. They all loved it, and many said they made it again at home!

Made 4 pies for a family get together, and it was all gone in a matter of minutes. Everyone raved and wanted the recipe. If you know some one who loves chocolate this will be a big hit!!

my husbands deja vu

by a. alicia , Monroe, CT on May. 2010

My husband used to work at this reasturant in mississippi when he was younger, this chocolate pie used to come in every morning and went to the frig, he would go sneak a peice everyday. When he left mississippi he thought it was chocolate chess pie ,so he has been looking for this pie for about 20 years or so. I tried cooking pies apox everyone I could find, no luck until I ran into this one I made it for him, his eyes just closed and he was 17 again back in the walk in frig at the restarant trying to get the pie finished before he was caught. Awesome thanks for bringing that memory back .

Nothing Special

Easy to make and no problem setting but to me, this recipe lacks something. I love chocolate but something was missing. I won't make this again. I would rather put forth more effort and be rewarded with exceptional flavor. Easy isn't always a plus for me.

for the disappointed

my co-worker brought this in to share...heaven! i had to have the recipe. well, my pie didnt set either. after about 8hrs i figured i have nothing to lose so i scooped the mixture back into the saucepan, very low heat and stirred for another ten mins. never allow to boil. poured it back into the crust and back in the fridge. voila!

Chocolate Satin Syrup

by C. Carrie , Pearl City, HI on Feb. 2010

Not sure what went wrong. I made the pie exactly as the instructions stated, but my pie never set up. It was more like syrup. My daughters liked spooning the syrup out to sip on, but I was hoping for a good dessert. What a waste of ingredients and time! May give it a second chance because the taste was yummy.

Even an 8th grader can do it

Absolutely wonderful recipe. I made the crust homemade. For the filling, when mixing and heating the milk and yolks use a thermometer and stir COSTANTLY with the whisk until it gets to 185-190F. To cool faster use another pie tin and fill it with ice cubes and set the pie in it. Sets in about an hour and a half. Sift some unsweetened cocoa powder on top to add some interest. Works great, tastes great!

An easy way to impress your guests

I love this quick and easy recipe. It looks and tastes like I slaved for hours, when I didn't. Everyone always loves the smooth chocolate, and I love that I'm not in the kitchen all day.
