What's life without another Luby's pie recipe?! Here is a great recipe for chocolate icebox pie (not Minnie's version-if you've read or watched The Help, you get what I'm sayin'). It's easy to bake, just keep an eye on the pie crust or it will end a little too golden ; )
2-1/2 cups milk, divided
1-1/3 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 Tablespoon butter or margarine
- 7 Tablespoons cornstarch
- 6 Tablespoons water
- 3 egg yolks, extra-large
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1 pie shell, 9-inch baked
- whipped cream, sweetened for topping (optional)
- chocolate curls or shavings for garnish (optional)
- In a large, heavy bottom saucepan, bring 2 cups milk, sugar, cocoa, and butter to a boil. Remove from heat.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together cornstarch, remaining milk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Add a little of the cooked mixture to this to temper the eggs...a slow steady stream should do. Once tempered, add this to the remaining cooked mixture, stirring constantly.
Bring heat back up, adjusting the burner to low. Mix with wire whisk until thick and smooth.
Stir in marshmallows and continue stirring until melted.
Pour into pie shell. Pat plastic wrap onto top of pie to avoid the pie forming a skin and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
