how to: make chocolate cream pie

my husband's favorite dessert is chocolate cream pie. i've made this recipe a few times and we love it. it is really simple and easy to make. i found the recipe at allrecipes.com.

Ingredients:
1 (9 inch) baked pie crust
1 1/4 cups white sugar
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups milk
4 egg yolks
2 (1 ounce) squares unsweetened chocolate
1 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium saucepan combine sugar, flour, cornstarch and salt. In a medium bowl beat together milk and eggs. Gradually stir the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients. Constantly stir over medium heat until it thickens and comes to a boil:
Stir for an additional minute while it boils. Remove from heat and add chocolate, butter and vanilla. Stir until melted.
Pour into pie shell. Cover with clear plastic wrap to prevent skin from forming and chill for several hours.
Top with whip cream and chocolate shavings, if desired. The chocolate shavings don't add much to the taste but they do make it look cooler. :)
