Grandma Mucha’s Famous Chocolate Pie

“My maternal grandma grew up with a garden and canned food growing up,” says Holly Stephenson. “I keep a garden and learned to can from Grandma Mucha. This is my favorite recipe of hers, and I always think of her when I make it!”

Ingredients: 

1 cup sugar
3 Tablespoons cocoa
⅓ cup flour
¼ teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 Tablespoon margarine
3 egg yolks, with egg whites, separated
1 teaspoon vanilla
Baked pie shell

Meringue:
3 egg whites
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ cup sugar

Recipe directions: 

Combine dry ingredients and sift. Add milk, margarine and egg yolks to a saucepan. Mix with a fork and cook until the mixture thickens and bubbles. Add vanilla. Pour into baked pie shell.

Top with meringue. To make meringue, whip egg whites until soft peaks form. Then add cream of tartar and sugar a little bit at a time. Beat until glossy peaks form. Add to top of pie and then place in 350-degree oven for 5 minutes. Watch it bake because sometimes it bakes quickly. Remove from oven, cool and eat.
