Chocolate Pie

Mmm this was so good!  Now to try it out on my mom when she comes to visit next!  This is from Southern Plate.

1 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 Cup self-rising flour
2 egg yolks
2 Cups milk
2 tsp butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1 baked pie shell

3 egg whits
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 325.  In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, cocoa powder and flour.  mix well.  Beat in the egg yolks and add the milk  Place over medium heat and cook until thickened, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.  Stir in the butter, vanill and salt.  Pour into the baked pie shell and top with meringue, if desired, or whipped cream.

To make the meringue, whip the egg whits until foamy with anelectric mixer on high speed.  Add the sugar.  Continue beating on high speed until soft peaks form.  pour onto the top of the pie and spread to the edges to seal well.  Bake at 325 for 15 minutes or until the top is golden.  Allow to cool completely and refrigerate before serving if you like.
