"This is a chocolate custard pie recipe my grandmother taught me many years ago. It's always a big hit at church functions, charity bake sales, or family get-togethers." — Troy Yarbrough

pie shell, baked
This is like my grandmother's with the exception that the butter was missing. I put in a couple teaspoons of butter and voila! Yes, it is thick but that simply means that the pie won't crumble. I've made the filling thinner but the pie didn't hold togeather as well as this one. I've saved the recipe and will definately use again.
I added 2 tbl butter and a 1/2 c more milk and it turned out alright. I gave it 3 stars because of the confusion. But other then that it was not bad but I don't see myself making it again any time soon. tks anyway.
I was not impressed with this pie.. Just a little too thick more like a fudge pie..reducing the amount of flour may help..
I have been making this pie for years. A helpful hint:
Use 3 cups milk. It works fine and still sets. You can also reduce the egg yolks to 3. Great for pudding for the kids too! Also don't forget the butter. Two tablespoons.
I have been looking so long for this very recipe.My great grandmother used to make these for me every christmas.I lost my recipe 5 yrs ago.This is the very same one.I have searched for 3 yrs for Thank You so much for posting it! It realy is 5 star
I wanted to try this recipe, but where is the butter ?
I love to bake and use all recipes almost every day, this recipe does not work. The filling is very watery and the meringue is off. If you look at other meringue recipes you'll see that the ratio is always 4 egg whites to 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter. I made grandma's lemon meringue pie yesterday and turned out beautiful, next time will add cornstarch, more cocoa and use standard meringue recipe.
Almost like the ones Mom makes,just a tad different,but excellant nonetheless! I don't understand what gave other reviewers problems,I made it exactly like the recipe and mine came out perfect...even my meringue was great,and it was only my second time making meringue.
