This is my grandmother's (Nanny) chocolate pie recipe. Everyone that eats it loves it and can't eat enough. Super simple and delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. This recipe makes two 9 inch pies.  Cook pie shells first.  Melt butter, add dry ingredients, add 2 whole eggs and six egg yolks.  Save other egg whites for meringue.  Add milk & vanilla last.  Mix all well with a whisk.  Cover with paper towel, cook in microwave for three minutes and stir.  Cook for a total of 12 minutes, stirring after each 3 minute interval.  Depending upon your microwave, twelve minutes should yield a stiff (grainy) pudding like texture.
  2. Pour into pie shells.
  3. Allow egg whites to sit at room temperature until you need to prepare the meringue.  Beat 6 egg whites until stiff.  Add one tablespoons of sugar for each egg white.  Add 2-3 drops of vanilla.  If not stiff add a pinch of salt or cream of tartar.  “Ice” pies with meringue and brown in oven.
