This is a chocolate meringue pie from my mom's recipe. My sister was here for supper, and she gave it two thumbs up. It's more of a pudding-type pie instead of a cream or French silk. The original recipe was cooked on the stove top, but now my mom and I both use the microwave, and it tastes just fine. Here's the recipe:
Heat 2 Cups of Milk & 1 Beaten Egg Yolk in microwave until hot (not boiling).
Stir together 2/3 Cup Sugar, 1/3 Cup Flour, a Little Salt, and at least 1/4 Cup Cocoa.
Stir Dry Ingredients with Milk/Egg Mixture. Heat in microwave until just boiling--stopping to stir every 45 seconds or so.
When chocolate mixture boils, remove from microwave and stir in 2 tsp. Margarine and 1 tsp. Vanilla. Poor mixture into cooked, cooled pie crust.
Meringue (for any meringue pie)
Beat Three Egg Whites. Add 1/4 tsp. Cream of Tarter. Beat eggs to stiff peaks.
Gradually add 2 Tbsp. sugar and mix. Do not over beat meringue.
Spread meringue on pie and bake for just a few minutes at 375 degrees, or until peaks of meringue just begin to turn brown.
