I had been searching for years to find a chocolate pie recipe like my grandma used to make. She had submitted the recipe to a church cookbook a long time ago but there were ingredients & cooking steps missing from the submission. I attempted to make her recipe before she passed away and it just didn't turn out and she couldn't remember the recipe well enough to tell me what went wrong. Low and behold, I have found this recipe and THIS IS PERFECT!! I have made it several times and the key is PATIENCE. It does take a bit to get the chocolate filling thickened as well as whip the meringue. I follow this recipe exactly as written with no changes. While I'm busy stirring the filling, I have my stand mixer beating the egg whites. They usually end up finishing at the same time. I've only had one issue with runny filling and that was because I didn't cook the filling long enough. I cook it to an almost peanut butter-like consistency. Thanks for the recipe Glenda!!
