I just noticed I neglected to add my grandma’s fabulous chocolate pie in the recipe section of this blog! Oops on my part! Since it’s getting close to the holidays thought it might be nice to correct that. However, be warned, the pie is a heart-stopper and an eye-crosser. The photograph depicts the thick-as-the-Mississippi-River-bottom mud pie with a graham cracker crust. Family tradition usually demands a regular old pie crust. Those pre-made rolled-up crust versions work quite nicely in a pinch. Oh, and don’t forget to top your generous slice with whipped cream.
1/2 c. cocoa
1/4 cup cornstarch
3 egg yolks
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
This recipe doesn’t have meringue on it. If you would like you could make the meringue.
Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolk; salt and sugar and vanilla, then add milk slowly, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat. Cook until thick, beating it smooth. Pour into a pie shell. Put in the refrigerator.
