  • Remove pan from heat, and add vanilla extract and butter. Mix well; pour filling into a baked, deep dish pie crust. Let cool completely.

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until peaks form. Slowly add 1/2 cup sugar, and beat again until stiff peaks form. Spread over cooled pie.

I fixed this pie for a family dinner and got rave reviews. In place of the meringue I used a whipped topping made from cream cheese sour cream sugar and vanilla with cool whip folded in. The combination of the 2 tastes blended wonderfully and was a nice change from meringue. Read More

The taste was awful! The pie set up beautifully. I used a graham cracker crust but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Read More

This pie was delicious and very rich tasting. I used 1 whole egg and 2 egg whites to cut down on the yolk content. I liked the fact that it was not all sugar also. This is my chocolate pie recipe from now own... Thanks Linda. Read More

This was good but next time I won't use so many eggs I think 3 egg yolks would be enough. It was a little eggy. Read More

WAAYYYY TO many eggs I use 3 egg yolks and 2 whites. Unless you like it eggy tasting don't use that many eggs. And if you use that much egg whites there will be way to much let over. Been making this pie for years and my fiance would flip if it was ever done wrong this is his favorite dessert. Read More
