  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In 1 1/2 quart casserole dish, mix together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa, salt and 1/2 cup of milk until smooth. Once it is mixed well, stir in remaining milk. Microwave on high for 5 to 8 minutes or until thick; stir halfway through cooking.

Microwave on high for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes or until thickened; stir frequently. Blend in butter and the 1 teaspoon of vanilla. Pour mixture into pastry shell.

  5. Seal rim of pie with aluminum foil, then bake in preheated oven for about 8 minutes or just until meringue gets browned.
