Don’t wreck a sublime chocolate experience by feeling guilty! —Lora Brody

My family loves this chocolate pie and we can eat a whole one in no time at all. I should probably make 2 when I make this pie, because they never last long.

Chocolate Pie Ingredients

1 (9 inch) deep dish pie crust,  baked

1 1/2 cups sugar

5 tablespoons cocoa

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk

4 egg yolks

2 teaspoons vanilla flavoring

4 tablespoons butter or margarine or 1/2 stick

Chocolate Pie Instructions

Bake your pie shell and let it cool before adding the filling.  In a large bowl whisk together the sugar, cocoa, flour, milk, vanilla and eggs.  Cut butter into about three pieces and add to pie liquid. (The butter will melt while cooking). Cook on top of the stove on medium high heat, stirring constantly about 9 to 10 minutes until filling thickens.  Don’t forget to stir because it will burn easily. If I think it is going to burn I move it from the burner for a minute or put it on the edge of the burner.  Once the filling thickens, pour into cooled pie shell and let cool about 10 to 12 minutes before adding meringue.

Meringue for chocolate pie

4 egg whites

2 tablespoons sugar

Beat the egg whites with a mixer until peaks form.  Add the sugar and beat about another minute.  Spread on top of the pie and bake in 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes until brown on top.  You can just put the pie under the broiler and brown the meringue that way.  If you put it under the broiler,  watch it carefully because it will burn easily.  I usually brown mine under the broiler but you can do it either way.
Note:  This pie is good without the meringue, too.
