When Spencer came home to vote yesterday, I wanted to give him a yummy dinner. He's very tired of campus food. We had roast & gravy, rice, carrots, & peas. For dessert we had JoAnne's Chocolate Pie.
You know when you get married some of your recipes come from your own family and some come from your husbands? This was my husband's mom's recipe. Make sense?
Give it a try it's so good. (To be honest I've had 2 pieces today.)
JoAnne's Chocolate Pie
3 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup sugar
Mix these three dry ingredients in a small bowl. Then put into medium size pot or double boiler.
1 cup milk
3 egg yolks
Whisk milk & yolks together lightly. Add to dry ingredients in boiler. On medium to medium high heat cook the mixture stirring constantly. After mixture thickens add:
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 or 5 large marshmallows
When you add the butter, vanilla, & marshmallows the pudding will thin a little. Thickens again as it cools. Stir continuously - I use a non-melt spatula and never stop until finished.
Pour into cooled pie crust. Top with meringue or whipped cream.
