Deep Dish Chocolate Pie

Deep Dish Chocolate Pie-


The only time I really make desserts are for special occasions.

This past weekend was special since my parents were visiting from out-of-state. My Poppa loves chocolate pie. What kind of daughter would I be if I didn’t have one for him?

To the pie!


1 1/2 c white granulated sugar

1/2 c all-purpose flour

1/2 c cocoa

1/4 tsp salt

3 eggs, separated

3 cups of cold milk

1 tsp of vanilla extract

3 tbsp real butter

Deep Dish Pie Crust, par baked

Deep Dish Chocolate Pie-

1. *Before you turn the heat on* In a medium-sized sauce pan {I used my cast iron skillet}, combine the first 4 ingredients, whisk together until thoroughly combined.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together your egg yolks and milk.

3. Pour your egg and milk mixture in with your dry ingredients. Whisk together until smooth.

4. Turn your burner on to medium heat.

5. Stir constantly.

6. When your chocolate filling begins to bubble, watch the clock and let it bubble for about 2 1/2 minutes while continually stirring. Remove from the heat.

7. Your chocolate filling mixture should be thick and resemble brownie batter.

8. Stir in your butter and vanilla until thoroughly incorporated.

9. Pour into your deep dish pie shell.

10. Allow to set for a few hours so the chocolate filling can set-up and not ooze out when you slice into it.

{It can be eaten as is, topped with whipped cream OR you can give it a meringue topping, which is what I did. If you would like to do so try this meringue recipe –you’ll have to scroll down a bit, just omit the coconut topping}
