About

Everyone loves a good old-fashioned homemade pie for the holiday. I love pumpkin and pecan pie, but my most favorite is Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie. This Chocolate Cream Pie Recipe is amazing! It is rich and velvety, sweet and thick just like an old fashoined chocolate pie should be. The chocolaty pudding filling is so comforting because it’s the way Mom and Mamaw used to make it. I have been making this pie for over 15 years I love old fashoined desserts they have to be my absoulute favorite. Ya know the ones old fashioned cream pies like chocolate, coconut or banana, lemon ice box pie or homemade banana pudding from scratch. Red velvet cakes, coconut cake, marble cake, sock it to me cake or a sunshine cake. Chocolate pudding from scratch and one of my favorites.
