Finally made this Mississippi Mud Pie that has over 100 prints. The result was quite outstanding as you can see in the picture. I used full-fat cream cheese and sour cream, so the white layer was so creamy and delicious.

The reason I gave this recipe four stars is because the chocolate layer did not set (later we figured out it was the cornstarch being cooked too long, then it lost the abilities).

So do not cook the chocolate mixture for 5 minutes, 2 minutes should be enough. Or use a bit more corn starch and flour than the recipe says.

Then we just put the pie into the freezer and froze the whole pie. It tasted like an ice cream, which we really loved.

I made my own pie crust with 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup ground walnuts, 1/4 cup ground pecans, and 3 tablespoons butter, and it came out nutty and flakey, which perfectly matched the flavour of the filling.

Definitely a winner pie that everyone would love.
