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.

How to Make My Mother's Chocolate Pie


  • 1Cook sugar, salt, milk, cocoa, flour, and egg yolks in double boiler until thick.
  • 2Add vanilla and butter. Pour into baked pie crust.
  • 3Most 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!
