I am a relative pie novice...I have never made a decent crust, and haven't had much luck with meringue, either. So, it was with trepidation that I attempted this recipe, and only because my husband's grandmother used to make chocolate meringue pie for his birthday and he wanted it. I am happy to report that it turned out GREAT!! The crust was flaky, the chocolate was delicious (and not runny), and the meringue was gorgeous. I did use half the sugar the recipe calls for, and I used the Betty Crocker meringue recipe instead (3 egg whites at room temp, 1/2 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp cream of tartar, and 6 tbsp sugar). I also brushed the pie crust with egg white before I filled it. I used the Best Pie Crust Ever recipe from this site. My husband said it was one of the best pies he's ever tasted!! Thanks, Diana!
