    Luby's Chocolate Icebox Pie
    Yield: 8 Servings


    2 1/2 cup milk; divided
    1 1/3 cup sugar
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 TBLS. butter or margarine
    7 TBLS. cornstarch
    6 TBLS. water
    3 egg yolks, extra-large
    1 tsp. vanilla
    1 cup miniature marshmallows
    1 pie shell, 9-inch; baked
    1 whipped cream, sweetened -for topping
    1 chocolate curls or shavings for garnish


    Combine 2 cups milk, sugar, cocoa, and butter in a medium-size saucepan.
    Bring just to a boil over medium heat. In a medium-size bowl, completely dissolve cornstarch in water. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk. Whisk in egg yolks and vanilla until well blended. Gradually add egg yolk mixture to mixture in saucepan, stirring constantly with wire whisk. Cook, stirring constantly, about 2 min., or until mixture is thickened and smooth. Add marshmallows and stir until they melt and mixture is smooth. Pour into pie shell. Press plastic wrap directly onto filling. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Remove plastic wrap. Top with whipped cream and garnish with chocolate curls.

    Note: Pressing plastic wrap directly onto hot pie filling prevents a tough, dry "skin" from forming as pie cools. Use a potato peeler to make decorative chocolate curls or shavings from a chocolate candy bar.
