Chocolate Cream Pie by Colleen

Colleen's Chocolate Cream Pie
Hi Barb ---

Here is a link to a chocolate cream pie that I've made a few times the past two weeks. A friend made it for me for my birthday once and Charlotte, William and Buddy just LOVE it.

I do change the crust recipe to use a whole box of Nabisco chocolate wafer cookies with 1 stick of butter but leave the sugar amount the same.

I also use more whipped cream for the topping: 2 cups whipping cream with 1/2 cup powdered sugar plus a teaspoon vanilla, whipped stiff.

It is not very hard to make, but there is considerable chilling time involved, so it is defiinitely a "make ahead" dessert or make in the morning if you want it for dinner.

It is an old-fashioned dessert.  But sometimes that is nice.  Kind of like whoopie cake.  All I know is the kids will fight each other to get the last piece!
