Grandma's Chocolate Pie

This is my grandmother's recipe for chocolate pie, I can remember being able to smell her cooking it from outside and I would come running.


Chocolate Pie

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 3 Tbsp. flour


  • 1 1/3 cups milk

Beat in:

  • 2 egg yolks (reserve white for topping)

Cook until thick, remove from heat and add:

  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. butter

Put in unbaked pie shell. Bake until crust is done

If you want, you can beat the egg whites to make a meringue. Put on pie and bake 7 - 8 minutes (until meringue is done).

Pie Meringue

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 6 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla flavoring

I usually make 2 pies and have the Double recipe handy:

Double Recipe

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 Tbsp. cocoa
  • 6 Tbsp. flour


  • 2 2/3 cups milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 4 tsp. butter

Follow instructions above.
