Chocolate Meringue Pie
I have used many different
meringue recipes (see the one listed under my Lemon Meringue pie recipe), but this one is the one listed in my file for this particular pie.
You could even top it with Cool Whip and some grated chocolate.
1 1/2 csugar
3 Tbspflour (rounded)
3 Tbsphershey's cocoa (heaping)
4 largeegg yokes
2 1/2 cmilk ( i usually mix 1/2 evaporated and 1/2 whole milk. it makes a richer, creamier pie)
1 Tbspbutter or margarine
1 tspvanilla extract
1/2 tspvanilla extract (optional)
How to Make Chocolate Meringue Pie
- Mix sugar,flour, cocoa and salt. Add part of milk(to make a thick paste). Add egg yoks and beat well, then add rest of milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thick. Add vanilla and butter when nearly done. Remove from heat and pour into cooled pie shell. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the filling. ( This helps to keep a film from forming on the filling while you are making the Meringue.)
Beat the egg whites and vanilla until frothy. Gradually add the sugar a tsp. at a time until stiff peaks form.
- Remove plastic wrap from pie filling and spread on the meringue covering entire pie sealing the edges(sealing the edges keeps meringue from shrinking after it's cooked). Return to oven and bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until meringue is golden brown.
