Jennifer's Signature Chocolate Cream Pie {Jennifer's Recipe}

1:11 PM
Chocolate Cream Pie, a family favorite, dreamy, creamy delicious.  Pies can be fun to make and such an accomplishment when finished.  This pie is simple to make with little fuss, yet has a rich and intense chocolate taste and topped with sweetened whipped cream.

When I was growing up, Chocolate Cream Pies were made for nearly every get-together.

When it comes to making a delicious chocolate cream pie today, my daughter, Jennifer is the one everyone wants to make it.

Chocolate cream pie has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember.   Pies can be fun to make such an accomplishment when finished.  This pie is simple to make with little fuss.

First, start off with the crust.  We use a homemade pie crust, but a shortbread cookie crust is equally as easy.

And store bought will do just fine too.  Second, for the filling, I add all the ingredients in a microwaveable safe bowl except the butter and vanilla and microwave for 6-8 minutes stirring every 2 minutes.

Did I say this pie is quick and easy to make?

I love that this pie has a rich and intense chocolate taste and to balance out that, it is topped with sweetened whipped cream.
