  Categories: Desserts, Pies
       Yield: 8 servings
       1    Pie shell, 9 or 10                1 ts Vanilla extract
       2    Chocolate Pudding (double           3 tb Confectioner’s
            -recipe)                                 Chocolate shavings
       1 pt Whipping Cream                 
   Make a double batch of Gary’s Chocolate Pudding increasing the
   cornstarch to about 4 1/2 tb per batch (8-10 total).  Chill
   thoroughly. This pudding will be extremely thick.
   Make or purchase your favorite pie shell.  I personally like the
   old fashioned, plain pie shell.  My family seems to prefer a cookie
   type of shell.  If you make your own, you must pre-bake it as this
   pie requires NO BAKING.
   Whip cream with confectioner’s sugar and vanilla extract until thick
   and fluffy.  Take 1/2 of the whipped cream and add to the chocolate
   pudding. Because the pudding is so thick, you will probably want to
   use an electric mixer for this task.  Mix until all of the whipped
   cream is thoroughly incorporated.
   Fill pie shell with the pudding-whipped cream mixture.  Place
   remaining whipped cream into a piping bag and pipe onto top of pie.
   Shave bittersweet chocolate on top as garnish.
   Cover pie and place into refrigerator for 2-3 hours to allow the
   cornstarch that is in the confectioner’s sugar to set.
