Cool Chocolate Meringue Pie Recipe

Ingredients:

· 9″ Baked Pie Crust

· 1 Cup Sugar

· 1/4 Cup Cornstarch

· 1/2 tsp. salt divided

· 5 large eggs, separated and at room temperature

· 2 1/2 Cups Milk

· 1 Tbsp. Vanilla Extract

· 2 Tbsp. Butter

· 4 oz. Unsweetened Chocolate, chopped

· 1/4 tsp. Cream of Tartar

Directions:

Mix sugar, cornstarch and half the salt together in a saucepan.

Add egg yolks and milk and mix well;

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until it just comes to a boil.

Simmer for 1 minute or until thickened.

Turn off heat and add vanilla, butter and chocolate and stir until smooth and glossy.

Pour into baked pie shell.

To make the meringue

Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt until frothy

While beating at high speed, slowly add 1 Cup Sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Immediately spread over hot filling, sealing it to the edges of the pie crust.

You can use your fingers to swirl into pretty peaks, I like to ‘play ‘ in mine, or use a pastry knife.

Bake at 375 for 15 minutes or until peaks are a nice golden brown.

Cool on rack and then refrigerate before serving.
