Grandmas Chocolate Pie

A few weeks back my sister-in-law Alex and I were talking about pie recipes for the holidays. She said, “Oh, I have a good one! My grandma made it all the time when I was a kid and it’s one of my favorites!”. Alex dug through her recipe and sent me a picture of her Grandma’s chocolate pie recipe. I am honored to share it wit you guys!

Grandmas Chocolate Pie

Ingredients
  1. 1½ c granulated sugar (plus ¼ of a cup seperatly)
  2. 2 c milk
  3. ½ c cocoa
  4. 3 eggs
  5. 1 T cornstarch
  6. ¼ t salt
  7. 1 T vanilla
  8. unbaked pie crust

Instructions
  • 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!)
  • Add in the sugar, cocoa, cornstarch, salt and vanilla.
  • Add milk and beat well.
  • 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.
  • Pour the batter into an unbaked pie crust and cook it at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • While that is baking, let's make the meringue.
