A Pie For Chocolate Lovers

by in Cooking

I am a chocoholic. So much so that I have become addicted and without my chocolate I get really bad optical migraines. Hey, guess what my cure is? Chocolate.. I think I can live with medicinal chocolate. :)

Being a chocolate connoisseur who rates restaurants on their ability to please me with their chocolate selection I think I know a good chocolate pie when I taste one. With that said I want to share with you one of my family recipes for the holidays. You will only be able to eat this rich pie once a year, trust me. In my family we like to call this pie the “Mary Beth Pie” – hold the cow spit. I will give you the recipe with the cow spit, who knows you just might like the taste of cows spit.

Mary's Pure Chocolate Pie

  • 3 egg yolks, beaten – save the whites for the meringue (cow spit)
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 cups of milk (2% or whole)
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 6 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 9″ pie shell, baked per package instructions
  1. Mix all dry ingredients in medium sauce pan
  2. Add 1 cup of milk
  3. Beat egg yolks in
  4. Add rest of milk
  5. Cook over medium heat until clumps start to form
  6. When clumps form add the butter and the vanilla and continue to mix until thick and smooth(this is the most important part, make sure you do not remove the mix until it is thick and smooth. This will be the actual consistency of the pie.)
  7. Once the mixture is thick and smooth add it to the cooked pie shell.
  8. Top with meringue (cow spit, if you dare)
  9. Place pie in the oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes or when the cow spits peaks are brown.
