Chocolate Cream Pie

2/3 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 Tablespoons baking cocoa

3 cups milk

4 egg yolks

4 teaspoons vanilla

Mix sugar, flour,salt and cocoa in a heavy saucepan.  Whisk egg yolks, and milk in a separate bowl.  Gradually whisk the milk and eggs into the dry ingredients. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until boiling.  Boil 1 minute and take off heat. Add vanilla and stir. Pour into baked pie shell.  Gently place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the pudding.  (This prevents a "skin" from forming on the top.) Chill 3-4 hours.

I know it's much easier to make a chocolate pie from instant pudding. 

 However, you should try this recipe. 

 It has a rich chocolate taste that no pudding ever does. 

Besides, it uses up 4 eggs. :)
