Hi, I am Rob Kingsbury, owner of Kingsbury Chocolates in Alexandria, Virginia. Today, we are going to be making a Chocolate Pie from scratch. So, we will be making a homemade pastry dough, a homemade chocolate pie filling and homemade whipped cream topping. The ingredients that we will need today for all three of these different recipes include heavy cream, milk, sugar, flour, cornstarch, vanilla, butter and shortening. The equipment and materials that we will need today in the kitchen include saucepans, spatula or spoons, a hand mixer with both a whipped and a mixing attachment and as well as a tart pan for the pastry dough. Also make sure you keep safety in mind. We are working with a hot stove top and a hot oven. So, keep your handles of your saucepans facing inward and use an oven safe mitt when you are working with the oven. Little bit about myself, I am co-owner of the new ACKC Cocoa Bar in D.
C. which is D.
C. s first Cocoa Bar as well as Kingsbury Chocolates in Alexandria, a chocolatier that makes all of our products right there on the premises.
So, anyways, enough about me, let us go ahead and get started making this delicious chocolate cream pie.
