Chocolate Cream Pie

My sister requested that I bake her a chocolate pie. And I did since I am pretty much the bestest sister ever. Here is the recipe:

Crust:
1 1/3 cups chocolate wafer crumbs or chocolate graham cracker crumbs
5 tbs. melted butter
1/4 cups sugar

Filling:
1/3 cups sugar
1/4 cups cornstarch
1/2 tsp. salt
4 egg yolks
3 cups milk
5 oz. melted bittersweet chocolate
2 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate
2 tbs. softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Topping:
3/4 cups chilled heavy cream
1 tbs. sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F. Stir together crumbs, butter, and sugar and press on the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Bake until crisp, around 12-14 minutes and cool on a rack.

Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt, and yolks in a 3-quart heavy saucepan until combined and then whisk in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat while whisking constantly. Reduce heat and continue whisking for another minute until the filling has thickened. Whisk in chocolates, butter, and vanilla. Cover surface of filling with tin foil or wax paper and cool completely (about 2 hours).

Spoon filling into crust, cover and chill pie for 6 hours.

Before serving, beat cream and sugar until it holds stiff peaks and spoon on top of pie.
