Black Bottom Pie

Black bottom pie is an old-fashioned sounding name for a pie, but whether it's old or new, it's amazingly delicious. With both vanilla custard and chocolate, it is a melding of both flavors into one of the most incredible chocolate dessert recipes.


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups scalded milk
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 (9-inch) baked pastry shell
  • 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate bits


  1. Combine cornstarch and the 1/2 cup of  sugar.
  2. Slowly add milk to egg yolks, then stir into sugar and cornstarch mixture.
  3. Cook in double boiler, stirring constantly, until it coats spoon.
  4. Remove from heat, add the 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
  5. Remove one cup of this custard mixture and stir in chocolate bits until melted.
  6. Pour chocolate mixture into pastry shell and chill.
  7. Soften gelatin in water and add to remaining hot custard; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in remaining vanilla and chill until slightly thickened.
  8. Beat eggs whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar while beating, until stiff.
  9. Fold custard/gelatin into egg whites and pile over chocolate layer in pie shell.
  10. Chill until set and garnish with chopped walnuts.
