Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine half the cream, the chocolate, and 3 tablespoons of the sugar. Cook over medium-low heat, whisking frequently, until the chocolate melts. In a bowl, combine the cornstarch and the remaining sugar. Add the egg yolks and whisk.
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of the warm chocolate mixture to the egg mixture. Whisking constantly, slowly add the egg mixture to the pan. Cook, still whisking, until thickened, 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the vanilla and butter. Whisk until the butter melts.
  3. Pour the filling into Shortbread-Pecan Crust. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the filling. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 48 hours. Sprinkle with the cocoa. With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the remaining cream. Serve with the pie.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
