MY GRANDMOTHER SERVED CHOCOLATE MERINGUE PIE AFTER SUNDAY DINNER EACH WEEK, USUALLY WITH AN APOLOGY IT WAS “TOO RUNNY” OR SOMETHING ELSE WAS WRONG WITH IT.
½ c. cocoa
¼ cup cornstarch
3 egg yolks
1 ½ c. sugar
¼ tsp. salt
2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
This recipe does not have meringue on it. You could make the meringue if you want.
Mix cocoa, cornstarch, beaten egg yolks; sugar and salt and vanilla, then add milk gradually, while stirring in a pot over med-high heat.
Cook until thick, beating it smooth.
Pour into a pre-baked pie shell.
Put in the fridge to chill
