My grandmother's recipe. It's the best!

2 cups sugar

4 tablespoons flour

2 tablespoons (rounded) cocoa

pinch of salt

2 cups whole milk

2 egg yolks

Mix the dry ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Stir until well combined.Then add 1/2 of the milk and egg yolks and stir until mixture becomes a smooth thick paste...add remaining milk and mix well. Then over medium to medium low heat, stirconstantly until mixture begins to bubble and thicken. Continue cooking and stirring untilconsistency is a thick custard (1-3 min.). Remove from heat. Cool. Stir occassionally and pour into a baked pie crust (I use Betty Crocker's Pie Crust mix). Refrigerate until cool. Before serving, top the pie with whipped and sweetened heavy cream. Serve with a smile!
