This is a delicious chocolate pie that I remember my mother making from the time I could remember such things. I'm sure she made up the recipe herself.

Ingredients

1 c
granulated sugar
1 pinch
salt
2 c
milk
7 Tbsp
cocoa, unsweetened
5 Tbsp
sifted all-purpose flour
3
egg yolks
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 Tbsp
butter
1
baked pie crust

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cook sugar, salt, milk, cocoa, flour, and egg yolks in double boiler until thick.
2
Add vanilla and butter. Pour into baked pie crust.
3
Most of the time, Mother made a meringue from the egg whites and browned the pie in the oven. Later in life, she used either real whipped cream or Cool Whip instead, and I liked that just as much. Easier!
