    This is my very favorite chocolate cream pie recipe. There's never any
    left at the end of the night. :-)

    Ghirardelli Chocolate Cream Pie

    Recipe By :
    Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories :

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 1/2 cups Whole Milk
    1 1/2 cups Half and Half
    6 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
    1 cup Ghirardelli Ground Chocolate -- + 2 Tablespoons
    6 tablespoons Granulated Sugar
    6 tablespoons Cornstarch
    1 Pinch Salt
    5 Egg Yolks
    1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
    9 inch Baked Pie Shell
    1/2 pint Heavy Cream
    2 tablespoons Superfine Sugar
    1 teaspoon Vanilla
    1 Semisweet Chocolate Square

    TRADITIONAL METHOD:

    In double boiler, scald milk and half & half with butter. Blend Ground
    Chocolate with sugar, cornstarch and salt. Using a wire whip, beat
    chocolate mixture into hot milk. Stir constantly for 5 minutes, or until
    filling begins to thicken. Mix a small amount of hot filling with egg
    yolks, then pour yolks into filling. Continue cooking a few minutes,
    stirring, until thick enough to hold a firm shape. Add vanilla. Pour into
    baked pie shell. Chill several hours or overnight.

    MICROWAVE METHOD:

    In microwave at power level 6 or 7 (60-70% power), in 2-quart casserole,
    scald milk and half & half with butter. Blend Ground Chocolate with sugar,
    cornstarch and salt. Using a wire whisk, beat chocolate mixture into hot
    milk. In a small bowl beat egg yolks until light, then beat into milk and
    chocolate mixture. Continue cooking at power level 6 or 7 for approximately
    8 minutes, beating thoroughly after each minute, or until thick enough to
    hold a firm shape. Add vanilla, beating thoroughly. Pour into baked pie
    shell. Chill several hours or overnight.

    In a chilled bowl with chilled beaters, beat heavy cream with sugar until
    very stiff. Spread over chocolate filling.

    Using a vegetable peeler or sharp knife, make chocolate curls with
    chocolate square and scatter over whipped cream.

    Description:
    "Adapted from Ghirardelli Original Chocolate Cookbook"
    Yield:
    "1 Pie"

    NOTES :
    There is no substitute for the Ghirardelli Ground Chocolate, and this pie
    cannot be made successfully with cocoa.

    It is very important to stir filling frequently while cooking, especially
    near end of cooking. If the filling should become lumpy, quickly press
    through fine sieve before pouring into pie shell.

    Mine was rhubarb pie with fruit direct from the garden. I made the pastry
    rolled out the bottom crust, went out and cut the rhubarb, rinsed it, sliced it
    up and then into the pie.

    Dave, freush rhubarb pie is one of my favorites. I can't grow it here, and I
    always seem to miss the short time that it appears in our supermarkets. I'm
    going to have to keep my out for it.

    Dave I've got about 6 rhubarb crowns, the first flush is just about
    finished, but it will produce another crop soon. I'm hopeless at making
    pie-crust, so I prefer the rhubarb crumble version.

    Wayne, in your recipe you refer to a 'double boiler' I wonder if they are
    what is known as a 'steamer' in the uk?

    I'm not Wayne but a double boiler is simply a pot or bowl placed over
    another pot of boiling water. Think bain marie, like this:

    Bertie, I'm not sure what the UK definition of steamer is, but a double
    boiler is essentially a saucepot containing your ingredients which is set
    on top of another pot of simmering or boiling water. The idea is to
    maintain a lower even temperature than cooking directly on the hob. If
    your hob can be adjusted to an extremely low heat, you could cook the
    filling directly, especially with constant stirring.

    You might know it as a bain marie. It's a pot put over another pot. The
    bottom pot will have hot water in it, for gentle heating of whatever's
    in the top pot.

    Thanks for the info Jill, Wayne and Serence. I now know what a DB is, for
    melting choc and low heat items.

    Wayne, my wife saw your recipe and thought she would try it this w/end, but
    substitute the regular pie shell mix with a shell she uses for cheesecake
    i.e. a pastry made from crushed cookies and butter. Thanks all.
