Grandma Jackson's Chocolate Cream Pie

Gail Welch Recipe

By Gail Welch sugarshack

This recipe belonged to 94 year old Iaeline Jackson. She was the grandmother of a co-worker of mine. My husband's mother's maiden name was Jackson so I'm adopting Mrs. Iaeline into our family as Grandma. She has been making this pie for her family many many years.
