“This is a chocolate custard pie recipe my grandmother taught me many years ago. It's always a big hit at church functions, charity bake sales, or family get-togethers.” - by Troy Yarbrough
Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch deep dish pie
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
- In a large saucepan or double boiler combine flour, cocoa powder, 1 cup of sugar, and salt. Mix well, then stir in milk and egg yolks. Whisk until all ingredients are thoroughly combined. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract. Pour mixture into baked pie shell.
- In a large glass or metal mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pie, covering completely.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or until top is lightly browned. Remove and allow to cool before serving.

"This is like my grandmother's with the exception that the butter was missing. I put in a couple teaspoons of butter and voila! Yes, it is thick but that simply means that the pie won't crumble. I've m..." See moreade the filling thinner but the pie didn't hold togeather as well as this one. I've saved the recipe and will definately use again."
