In this article, we’ll take you through each step of the process, from preparing the crust to baking the filling, so that you can create your very own mouthwatering masterpiece.

Gathering Ingredients and Preparing the Crust

To start off your cooked chocolate pie journey, gather all of the necessary ingredients. You’ll need 1 ½ cups of all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, ½ cup of unsalted butter (cold and cut into small cubes), 4-5 tablespoons of ice-cold water, and 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar for the crust.

Begin by combining the flour, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add in the butter cubes and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work it into the dry mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add in cold water, one tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together.

Next, shape the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes before rolling it out on a lightly floured surface. Once rolled out to fit your pie dish size (usually around 9 inches), carefully transfer it to your greased pie dish.

Preparing and Cooking the Filling

Now that you have your crust ready in its dish let’s move on to preparing the delicious cooked chocolate filling.

For this step, you will need ¾ cup of granulated sugar, ¼ cup of unsweetened cocoa powder, ¼ cup of all-purpose flour, ¼ teaspoon of salt, 2 ½ cups of whole milk, 4 large egg yolks (lightly beaten), and 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter.

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and salt. Gradually whisk in the milk until the mixture is smooth. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook while stirring constantly until the mixture thickens. This usually takes around 10-12 minutes.

Once the mixture has thickened to a pudding-like consistency, remove it from heat. Slowly pour about one-third of the hot mixture into the beaten egg yolks while whisking continuously to temper them. Pour this tempered mixture back into the saucepan with the remaining hot mixture and return it to low heat.

Continue cooking and stirring for an additional 2-3 minutes until everything is well combined. Remove from heat and stir in the butter until melted and incorporated into the filling.

Assembling and Baking

Now that your filling is ready, it’s time to assemble your cooked chocolate pie. Pour the warm chocolate filling into your prepared pie crust, smoothing it out evenly with a spatula or back of a spoon.

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) while you let your pie sit for a few minutes to cool down slightly before baking.

Once preheated, place your pie on a baking sheet in case any filling spills over during baking. This will help keep your oven clean. Bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and set.

Serving and Enjoying

After removing your cooked chocolate pie from the oven, allow it to cool completely before serving. For an extra touch of decadence, top each slice with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream just before serving.

With its velvety smooth texture, rich chocolate flavor, and buttery crust, this cooked chocolate pie is a dessert that is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Whether enjoyed on its own or as the grand finale to a special meal, this recipe will quickly become a favorite in your dessert repertoire. So go ahead and treat yourself to a slice of pure chocolate bliss with this deliciously decadent cooked chocolate pie recipe.
