How to Make Mary Joyce's Chocolate Pie

Stir in butter and vanilla.
Allow to cool and then pour into prepared pie crust.

Whip egg whites until almost stiff. Add 1/4 tsp of cream of tartar, 3 Tbs sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix well and spread on pie.
Bake 350 degrees just until the meringue lightly browns.
If you have never made a pie before, I encourage you to read through my pie recipes to thoroughly understand one of the 'secrets' to making a good pie filling is knowing the art of how to mix your ingredients together properly. This mixing process can easily be mastered. I have been long winded in other pie recipes so a 12 or 13 year old may make these old fashioned pies.
