Just wanted to let you know that I did Grandma's pie recipe justice. It was as good as hers and turned out perfect.Mama rolled in her grave.
Here are the ingredients for chocolate-meringue pie:
1 cup sugar
6 T cocoa
4 heaping T flour (or cornstarch)
4-1/2 cup milk
4 eggs, separated
1 T orange zest
1/2 stick butter
1 t. vanilla
Mix all ingredients except egg whites, butter & vanilla. Cook over medium heat until thick, yadda, yadda. Stir butter and vanilla into thickened mixture.
Use egg whites for meringue with:
Pinch cream of tartar
4 T sugar
Cook topped pie at 350 degrees until browned.
If you need more instructions, don't try.
UPDATE: Makes a 10-inch pie.
