Ingredients

  • 1 refrigerated prepared pie crust
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 Tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 cup low fat milk
  • 1 egg yolk beaten
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 ounce semi sweet chocolate
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon confectioners sugar

Instructions

  • Roll out pie crust and cut out 6 circles (I used a cup as a guide)
  • Grease 6 cups of a cupcake baking pan.
  • Place dough into each of the 6 prepared cups.
  • Prick the sides and bottom of dough in each cup.
  • Bake according to package directions.
  • While pie cups are baking prepare chocolate cream.
  • In a saucepan combine sugar, salt, and corn starch.
  • Slowly whisk in milk, egg yolk, and chocolates.
  • Stir continually until cream thickens (coats a spoon).
  • Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla.
  • Place chocolate cream into the refrigerator and chill for thirty minutes.
  • Prior to assembling the mini pies prepare the whipped cream.
  • In a medium bowl combine heavy cream and confectioners sugar.
  • Beat on high with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
  • Divide chocolate cream into the mini pie shells.
  • Top with whipped cream.
  • Garnish with shaved chocolate.

Notes

When I make whipped cream I usually make an entire cup, however this recipe only uses about a third of the prepared whipped cream. If you want left over whipped cream increase the heavy cream to 1 cup and the confectioners sugar to 1 tablespoon.
