Cocoa Cream Pie Recipe Notes

Some people asked if you need to bake or freeze it… No, is the answer. It is an old-fashioned pudding. It thickens as you cook it and will firm up more when you chill it, but if you want to eat it warm by all means do! * I
don’t recommend using arrowroot powder as a substitute for cornstarch or flour; it kind of makes it stringy and sticky. I had it as a gluten-free option, but took it out, because I did not like the outcome. Cornstarch is a perfect gluten-free option and was always my granny’s first choice when making cream pies.

To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:


  • ½ c. cocoa
  • ¼ cup cornstarch/or arrowroot powder (or ½ c. all purpose flour
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 ½ c. sugar
