Deep Dish Chocolate Pie

The only time I really make desserts are for special occasions.

This past weekend was special since my parents were visiting from out of state. My Poppa loves chocolate pie. What kind of daughter would I be if I didn't have one for him?

To the pie!

1 1/2 c white granulated sugar
1/2 c all purpose flour
1/2 c cocoa
1/4 tsp salt
3 eggs, separated
3 cups of cold milk
1 tsp of vanilla extract
3 tbsp real butter
A crust to put it in {recipe}


1. *Before you turn the heat on* In a medium sized sauce pan {I used my cast iron skillet}, combine the first 4 ingredients, whisk together until thoroughly combined.
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together your egg yolks and milk.
3. Pour your egg and milk mixture in with your dry ingredients. Whisk together until smooth.  
4. Turn your burner on to medium heat.
5. Stir constantly.
6. When your chocolate filling begins to bubble, watch the clock and let it bubble for about 2 1/2 minutes while continually stirring. Remove from the heat.
7. Your chocolate filling mixture should be thick and resemble brownie batter.
8. Stir in your butter and vanilla until thoroughly incorporated.
9. Pour into your deep dish pie shell.
{It can be eaten as is OR you can give it a meringue topping, which is what I did. If you would like to do so, keep scrolling}

Stiff peaks
Meringue Ingredients
3 egg whites
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
4 Tbsp Sugar

1. With a hand mixer, beat the egg whites at a medium speed until soft peaks form.
2. Add in your remaining ingredients, return your hand mixer and beat until stiff peaks form.
3. Spread onto your pie filling until all of the filling is covered.
4. Bake at 350 degress Farenheit until your meringue is golden brown {about 8 to 10 minutes-- but keep a close eye on it!}

Serve some to your favorite people.
