My mother in law found this recipe in the newspaper many years ago. Her best friend Ruby just found out she had stage 5 breast cancer. My mother in law made these pies and took one over to her. Ruby said the was the best pie she had ever had. We still have the clpping and on the clipping is written "Ruby's favorite pie".
1Bring pie shells to room temperature. Place on foil lined cookie sheets.
3Beat eggs in a large bowl.
5Add cocoa beat well to completely combine.
6Add melted butter.
7Add canned milk. Beat until well combined.
8Pour into pie shells.
9Bake at 425 for 10 minutes.
10Turn oven down to 350 and bake for 35 minutes.
11Check pies and use the knife test. If a knife stuck in the middle of the pie comes out clean pie is done. If the knife is not clean bake at 350 checking every five minutes until knife comes out clean.
12Cool. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. This is a very rich pie.
13Oh I forgot you need to preheat your oven to 425 to start.
