While Emil went on his first bike ride tonight, I made a chocolate pudding pie. I guess I am a little homesick for South Carolina, so I decided to make the pie that my Mother makes often. She would make it at major holidays for Patti, my sister-in-law. She loves chocolate!
I've actually never made the pie before, so I had to read a few directions on the pie crust and pudding box. Basically, bake the pie crust (poke holes in the unbaked crust), and then let it cool completely. While it cools, cook up the chocolate pudding and then pour it in the crust. Takes about 3 hours to set. Mother always tops it with Cool Whip, which I forgot to buy at the store today. Emil gave it a thumbs up even without the Cool Whip.
