1 1/2 squares baking chocolate
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Scald milk with baking chocolate. Mix in sugar, cornstarch, salt, and then stir in milk and cook in double boiler for 10 minutes until thickened.
Stir a small amount of the liquid into beaten egg yolks, being careful not to curdle them, then add the rest of the liquid. Stir and cook for 2 minutes.
Add butter and vanilla extract, then cool. Beat well and pour into pastry shell, top with whipped cream, and chill until quite firm.
