chocolate pie made with cocoa

  • Hi! Does anyone have a good chocolate pie recipe that uses cocoa? Most of the ones I see use chocolate squares. They are more expensive and I always have cocoa on hand.
  • Here is a recipe


    Chocolate Pie

    2 cups white sugar
    5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    4 egg yolks
    1/4 cup butter
    1 9 inch single crust pie
    4 egg whites
    1/4 cup white sugar

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a saucepan, whisk together 2 cups sugar, cocoa and flour. Blend in evaporated milk and vanilla. Beat egg yolks, and stir into pan. Add the butter or margarine. Heat, stirring constantly just until butter is melted. Pour filling into unbaked pie shell. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until pie is not "wobbly" when shaken. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating constantly, until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue on pie. Return pie to oven, and bake until meringue is golden.
