This is a family favorite of ours. I made it for Derek yesterday for our anniversary.

Chocolate Pie
1 1/2 c. sugar
3T. cocoa
3T. flour
1 lump of butter
1` 1/2 c. canned milk
3 egg yolks(save whites for meringue)
Mix in order. Stir on stove. Cook until thick. Pour into baked pie shell.

Mix 3 egg whites and 1/4 t. cream of tartar
Add 6 T sugar, one at a time and beat until stiff(check with knife for peaks to stand up)
Add 1 t. vanilla and beat.
Put on top of pie. Seal edges of pie with meringue or it will shrink away from the edge.

Bake at 400 for 8-10 minutes, till meringue browns.
