Dessert for Two - Foodie Friday





Today I thought I would join Foodie Friday with an old standby and my family's favorite. Thanks to Gollum @ http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com for hosting this wonderful event. Be sure to go by her blog and check out all the wonderful Foodie items and collect a few new recipes.




We are having dessert for two. I made my DH's favorite pie for dessert tonight. It is just a good ole' standyby, Chocolate Pie. I have an old recipe that my grandmother use to make and the chocolate filling is just so special, I thought I would share it.

3 tsp. cocoa
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
Combine in sauce pan and mix well : Add
3 cups milk
3 egg yolks ( reserve the whites for the meringue )

Cook stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat and add l tsp. vanilla. Let cool slightly and then fill baked pie shell. Top with meringue or chill and top with whipped cream.
I hope you enjoy.

  14. It sounds wonderful and delicious Marty! I love the pretty picture you took of it too.

    My husband is off work next week so we will make this one. It's funny but he absolutely loves to try out new recipes. LOVES it! It's too cute to watch. I just let him take over and he makes the entire dinner some nights. LOL! I guess he secretly wishes he was a chef. :)

    Thanks for checking out my Red post and posting the award. I think you are the only one so far. I thought it was pretty and special and wanted to share it with my friends.
    Pay Wib a visit if you have a moment. She is a wonderful person and loves to meet new kind hearted people.
