this has a wonderful flavor - though the first time i tried it, it wouldn't set and i just ended up with a chocolate pudding. The second time i tried it, i increased it to 4 tablespoons of corn starch and that solved the problem. I don't know if that's an altitude adjustment (i live over a mile above sea level) or if it's just a general improvement The other adjustment i would recommend makes the pie filling absolutely heavenly. I reduced the amount of milk to 2 3/4 cups and add 1/4 cup of Bailey's Irish Cream. That made this pie the best cream pie i have ever had.

I used 4 heaping tablespoons of cornstarch, an extra egg yoke, 2 cups cream and one cup of milk. It turned out fabulous. I also added 1 tablespoon of extra strong coffee to bring out the chocolate flavor. This recipe takes a while but the flavor is so much better than boxed. I will be using this whenever I want to prepare something extra special for my family.

I made this today for our Thanksgiving dinner as an alternative for those that don't like pumpkin pie and everyone loved it. First chocolate cream pie that I've ever made from scratch and I couldn't be happier with the results! I used 4 TBSP of cornstarch—and whole milk [if that makes a difference]. I also let it cook a few minutes longer, rather than removing it from the heat as soon as it started boiling. Served it in a chocolate cookie crust with whipped topping.
