Grandma Mamie’s Chocolate Pie

This recipe has be in my family for many, many years. It is my great great great grandmothers recipe. Whenever this pie is cooked, the whole family fights over the last piece. I hope that everyone enjoys it as well as we do. By the way, the ingredients can be doubled for a deep dish pie.

Ingredients:

1 baked pie shell
1 1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa
4 Tbsp. butter
3 egg yolks
2 cups milk

Directions:

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil on medium heat.  (soft ball stage)  Pour into cooked pie shell and cool to room temperature.

Meringue:

3 egg whites
3 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp cream of tarter

Beat egg whites & cream of tarter until it starts to peak stage with mixer.  With the mixer running, slowly add sugar, one Tbsp at a time until meringue peaks. Spread on top of pie and brown in oven at 375 degrees. Watch it closely to keep it from burning.
