Ingredients
Crust:
  • 1¼ cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons (100 grams) cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 2-4 tablespoons cold water
Egg wash:
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Filling:
  • 6 oz high-quality dark chocolate (60% cacao), broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • ½ cup plain, low-fat Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup reduced-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons whole-wheat pastry flour
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Prepare the crust according to these directions: whole-wheat pie crust recipe.
  2. Keep the oven heated to 350 degrees F. While the crust is cooling, prepare the filling. Place the chocolate and butter in a large saucepan. Slowly melt over low heat, stirring often.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and yogurt, then add the milk. Add the flour and whisk well to combine.
  4. When chocolate is melted, turn heat off. Pour a small amount of the egg mixture into the chocolate mixture (about 2 tablespoons), whisking constantly. Keep pouring the egg mixture, slowly, whisking, until incorporated.
  5. Sift the powdered sugar through a fine-mesh strainer into the chocolate-egg mixture. Whisk until everything is well-incorporated.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust. Bake 45-60 minutes, shielding the crust with foil strips if you need to bake longer than 45 minutes. The chocolate pie is ready when the center is slightly puffed and a toothpick inserted in it comes out clean.
  7. Cool 2 hours in pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
