This is my mother-in-law's chocolate pie, adjusted for the fact that we can't eat like 20-year-olds any more. The original called for 1 cup of sugar and cooking in a double boiler. I use the Equal Spoonful and use the microwave.
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 cups milk
- 1 cup Equal sugar substitute (Equal spoonful)
- 1⁄3 cup cocoa
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 9 inches baked pie crusts, cooled
Directions See How It's Made
- Beat egg yolks, add milk. Beat. Sift together Equal Spoonful, cocoa, flour, and salt in a microwaveable bowl. Stir in about 1/3 of the milk mixture to make a smooth paste. Slowly stir in remaining milk/egg until smooth.
- Microwave about 4 minutes, stopping every 30 to 60 seconds to stir, until thick. Add 1T butter and 1/2 t. vanilla, stir until butter melts. Pour into baked pie shell. Top with meringue if desired or lite whipped topping. Chill.
