Dairy Free Chocolate Pie

My Mamaw used to make the best chocolate pie on the planet.  I can remember at family gatherings on the weekends she would make two.  You had to fight to get a piece.  The pieces of pie were coveted pieces of chocolate delight and there were never any leftovers.  

Honestly, I am not a huge pie fan.  I like pumpkin and chocolate. I miss Mamaw’s chocolate pie and I wanted to capture the flavor and silky texture.  I found a  recipe from a cookbook written in the 1930’s for chocolate icebox pie.  My goal was to make it dairy free, added sugar-free and gluten-free.  The recipe called for whole milk, butter, white granulated sugar, and cornstarch.  All piled happily in a traditional pastry crust.  Sounds amazing but my body is not going to like it and cancer might be in love with it.  I needed to remake it!  I needed chocolate pie!  I won’t lie I had several fails.  Then this happened….ENJOY

Dairy Free Chocolate Pie

NOTE: Please remember when making the body inhospitable to cancer dessert is to be eaten in moderation.  Even a dairy free and gluten free dessert, not GUILT free!  However, if you are going to indulge a little this is a great recipe for indulgence!
