Chocolate Sunday Pie

This weekend while we were in the big city aka Dallas we hit up the Half Price Book Warehouse where I got a new Gooseberry Patch Cookbook.  This recipe was in it and I made it as soon as I stumbled across it.  It was GREAT!  Hubby loved it to and said it is even better than the local bakery.

1 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup all purpose flour
5 tb. baking cocoa
2 cup milk
3 egg yolks lightly beaten (Save the whites!!!)
1 tb. butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
9 inch pie crust (baked)

Combine sugar, flour and cocoa in a medium sauce pan.
Gradually add milk stirring well.
Slowly add egg yolks to the chocolate mixture and then add in butter.
Cook mixture over medium heat about 20 minutes or until thickened. (Mine didn't take that long)
Stir often!!!
Remove from heat and add in the vanilla.
Pour into pie crust and add the meringue on top.
Spread together and make sure to cover all the way to the pie crust. (This "seals" it)
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until meringue is golden. 
Cool completely!

3 egg whites
1/4 tsp cream of tartar (Lemon juice is a good substitute)
1/4 cup sugar

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed with mixer until foamy.
Beat in sugar 1 tb at a time until stiff peaks form... (It takes awhile)
