Mom's Chocolate Pie #3

KimmyKimmy Moelk

This was one of my Mom’s specialties. More than once, she let us make it for dinner, saying, “life is short! Eat dessert first.” Truer words were never spoken-- especially by her.


  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 heaping T butter
  • 2 oz chocolate, grated
  • 2 T flour
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 2 T sugar for each egg white


  • 1

    Melt chocolate in a double boiler, add milk, and scald. Sift sugar and flour together and cream with butter; add 3 egg yolks and vanilla, beat mixture into hot milk and stir until thick. When cool, pour into previously baked pie crust and cover with meringue (or fresh whipped cream, which I prefer).

  • 2

    For meringue:

  • 3

    Beat egg whites until stiff, but not dry. Then, add sugar. Add 3/4 t vanilla.

  • 4

    Bake at 325 for 12 to 15 minutes or 425 for 4 to 5 minutes.


If you don't like meringue, top it with fresh whipped cream.
