S'mores Pie --- A Must Try

I promised you a pie recipe, so a pie recipe you shall have!

How about a...

S'mores Pie!

My boys (okay, and Chris & I) LOVE s'mores. We really, really love them. I was thinking about other ways of making them (like my S'mores cupcakes) and dreamt up this pie. No, really. I dreamt about it. And then I made it. 

And it was divine. 

You need to try it.  

S'mores Pie
Yield: One pie

1 graham cracker pie crust (click for my 3 ingredient recipe)
7 Jumbo marshmallows (or marshmallows of your choice)

For Filling:
1/4 cup (heaping, not leveled) cocoa powder
1/4 cup flour
3/4 cup white sugar
pinch of salt
1.5 cups milk 
2 egg yolks
1.5 tablespoons butter
1/2 tablespoon vanilla

In a sauce pan over medium heat combine cocoa, flour, sugar, salt, milk, egg yolks & vanilla. Whisk continuously until it gets as thick as you want it for your pie, about 6-7 minutes. Whisk out any lumps that may form. Once thickened, remove from heat and whisk in butter for a glossy finish. 

Pour into graham cracker shell. Cut jumbo marshmallows in half and place them on top of the filling. Put pie under the broiler until marshmallows are browned - watch closely! 

If they aren't gooey enough for you, cover loosely with foil and return to a 350 degree oven for 3-5 minutes.

*Note: Store this in the refrigerator. It will slice much better cold, but tastes wonderful straight out of the oven.
