Who doesn’t remember their Grandmother’s chocolate pie? No matter how many pies she would make, they would be eaten to the very last bite.
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cocoa (I lean toward more a milk chocolate than dark chocolate.)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk (1 can evaporated milk and add water to equal the 2 cups)
3 slightly beaten egg yolks (save the whites for the meringue)
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 – 9″ pie crust, baked
In a sauce pan combine sugar, flour, cocoa, and salt. Stir in milk. Cook and stir over medium heat until bubbly – cook for 2 more minutes. Remove from heat. Stir small amount of hot mixture into your egg yolks, immediately return to hot mixture – cook another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat again and add butter and vanilla. Pour into a baked pie crust. Spread meringue on top of pie and bake at 350 degrees for 12 – 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy!
