Red Velvet Pie

A few weeks ago I made a Red Velvet Pie but I haven't shared the recipe yet. I think It would be a perfect dessert to make for Valentines Day!! It's red, it's sweet, and it's chocolaty. If you don't make it for Valentines Day that's fine but I strongly encourage you to make it because it's superb.

Red Velvet Pie

Red Part-Filling
1 pie crust baked and cooled
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup corn starch
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup whole buttermilk
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 (1oz) red food coloring
2 tsp vanilla

Whisk together sugar, corn starch, and cocoa in a medium sauce pan. Whisk in cream, buttermilk, and eggs. Bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Boil, whisking constantly 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from heat; stir in food coloring and vanilla. 

Pour mixture into prepared crust, and cool 1 hour on counter. Cover and chill until set (about 3 hrs.

Whipped Cream Cheese Topping:
1 8oz package of cream cheese softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups heavy cream

Beat cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, and salt at medium speed with a heavy duty stand mixer, using the whisk attachment, until smooth and creamy. Gradually add in the cream, beating at medium speed until soft peaks form.
