Grandmother's Sunday Chocolate Pie



1 1/2 cups sugar


4 Tbsp. flour

5 Tbsp. cocoa powder

2 cups milk

3 egg yolks

1 Tbsp. butter

1 tsp. butter flavor extract

prebaked pie shell



Meringue

3 egg whites

1/4 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 cup sugar

In a medium pan, combine sugar, flour, and cocoa and mix well. Slowly add milk. Slightly beat the yolks and add to chocolate mixture. Add the butter. Cook until thick, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and add extract. Pour into prebaked shell and top with meringue.




For meringue, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy and slowly add sugar. Beat until still peaks form. Top pie with meringue and bake at 350 degrees until meringue is golden.




This is truly the best chocolate pie EVER!!!
