Chocolate cream pie is one of my all time favorite pies. It’s true comfort food, or maybe I should say comfort dessert— whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious and I love it.
Sadly, it’s been waaaay too long since I’ve made one, probably because I’ve either been too busy making chocolate chip cookies and/or because of the whole pie crust issue I have. Well, this time I opted for a graham cracker crust, which I usually don’t do with chocolate cream pie, but this time I did and guess what? It totally works. An oreo crust would be fabulous too as is just the good old pastry pie crust.
This is the chocolate cream pie I have been making since I got married. The recipe comes from the original Lion House Cookbook (one of my favorites). I got it as a wedding gift and let me just say it is a little worse for wear. If you’re looking for a pie to go along side your pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving, I’ve got you covered.
