  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1                    Pie Shell -- 9" or 10"
   1      Teaspoon      Vanilla Extract
   2      Recipes       Gary's Chocolate Pudding
   3      Tablespoons   Confectioner's Sugar
   1      Pint          Whipping Cream
                        Semi-Sweet Chocolate Shavings

1)  Make a double batch of Gary's Chocolate Pudding increasing the cornstarch to about 4 1/2 tb per batch (8-10 total).  Chill thoroughly.  This pudding will be extremely thick.

2)  Make or purchase your favorite pie shell.  I personally like the good old fashioned, plain pie shell.  My family seems to prefer a cookie type of shell.  If you make your own, you must pre-bake it as this pie requires NO BAKING.

3)  Whip cream with confectioner's sugar and vanilla extract until thick and fluffy.  Take 1/2 of the whipped cream and add to the chocolate pudding. Because the pudding is so thick, you will probably want to use an electric mixer for this task.  Mix until all of the whipped cream is thoroughly incorporated.

4)  Fill pie shell with the pudding-whipped cream mixture.  Place remaining whipped cream into a piping bag and pipe onto top of pie.  Shave bittersweet chocolate on top as garnish.

5)  Cover pie and place into refrigerator for 2-3 hours before serving.
