Chocolate Pie and Coconut Pie

Chocolate Pie
1 cup sugar
2 1/2 TBSP cocoa powder
3 TBSP cornstarch or arrowroot powder
pinch of salt
3 egg yolks
1 small can evaporated milk or 1 cup of whole milk
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 TBSP butter
I'm going to tell you a super easy way to make this pie. Don't worry about the evaporated milk. I usually just use 1 cup of whole milk in place of it and it works just fine. Whisk first 7 ingredients in a skillet over medium high heat. I usually whisk the entire time, because I want all the ingredients to be mixed well. You don't want clumps and lumps. You also want those eggs mixed super well~~ nothings worse than having "egg" in your pie! You want to bring it to a low boil and boil for about 1-2 minutes- whisking the entire time remember!  Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Whisk until incorporated. Pour immediately into pre-baked pie shell. Chill and serve.
For a coconut pie you do it the same way EXCEPT decrease sugar to 3/4 cup, omit cocoa and add 1/2 cup coconut to mixture. Do everything else the same. Toasted coconut sprinkled on top tastes great too. You can also skip the pie shell and pour into small cups for a "pudding" treat!
This recipe of chocolate and coconut pie originally came from Brad's grandmother, RV.
