  • Remove pan from heat. Whisk remaining 1/4 cup sugar into egg yolks.

  • Pour the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks in a slow stream, whisking constantly. Return filling mixture to the saucepan and cook over medium heat for an additional 90 seconds, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in butter and vanilla.

  • Pour filling into pie shell, and chill until set, about 4 hours. Top with whipped cream and a little grated chocolate before serving.

Editor's Note:

To make and decorate this pie a day ahead of time, let pie chill as directed. Pipe gelatin-stabilized whipped cream rosettes on top of the pie; sprinkle with grated chocolate. Store in the refrigerator.
