Chocolate Pie

Who doesn't love a good ole chocolate pie? Especially from Grandma! This isn't my own grandma's recipe however it is still very good! Thank you Homesicktexan blogger!!

Ingredients for pie filling:
  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 5 tablespoons of flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • 2 egg yolks, beaten slightly
Ingredients for meringue:
  • 2 egg whites
  • drop of lemon juice
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar
You will also need a pie crust. You can make your own or just buy one at the store. I used the regular in this one, but the oreo crust is a very good choice also.

  • Separate egg whites and yolks of two eggs and set aside 
  • Mix all but the vanilla and butter filling ingredients by whisking
  • cook while stirring in a sauce pan on medium heat until very thick and bubbley or about 5 or 10 minutes ( resembles pudding)
  • remove from heat and add vanilla and butter
  • Meanwhile poke wholes in pie crust with fork and bake at 350 for about 10 minutes
  • Now beat egg whites and lemon until fluffy with electric mixer
  • then slowly add in the sugar while still beating until fluffy and whipped
  • Pour chocolate filling onto pie crust and carefully and evenly top with meringue
  • bake on 350 for about 10 minutes or until meringue is lightly browned

Enjoy hot or cold!
