Grandmas Chocolate Pie
The perfect chocolate pie recipe that has been handed down for generations!
  • 1½ c granulated sugar (plus ¼ of a cup seperatly)
  • 2 c milk
  • ½ c cocoa
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • ¼ t salt
  • 1 T vanilla
  • unbaked pie crust
  1. Beat 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks in your mixer. (This is the one I have in my kitchen. I've had it for almost 12 years and it still runs like it's brand new!)
  2. Add in the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, salt and vanilla.
  3. Add milk and beat well.
  4. Move it to a sauce pan and cook over slow/low fire until it start to thicken. Whisk the entire time. You don't want it to scorch.
  5. Pour the batter into an unbaked pie crust and cook it at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes.
  6. While that is baking, let's make the meringue.
  7. In the standing mixer add the two remaining egg whites. Ensure they are at room temperature, this is very important.
  8. Beat on high until the form high peaks adding 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar at a time, up to ¼ of a cup. OR, you can omit the sugar, you do not have to use it.
  9. Once the pie is done take it out of the oven and add the meringue.
  10. Put it back in the oven at 350° for 12 minutes or until it is golden brown.
  11. Let it cool and slice it up. This pie will not disappoint.
