A friend of mine in TX, is in her early 70's, and this was her gramma's recipe, from the South TX Coast where she grew up...It is very rich! Use a graham cracker crust, that's what Tootsie uses, and I have used both pie crust, and graham, graham is the very best!

Original Recipe:

3 C Sugar
2/3 C Cocoa
1 heaping T (heap it full) Flour
5 Egg Yolks
1 15 oz can Evaporated Milk or 2 1/2 C Sweet Milk
1 stick Butter melted


5 Egg Whites


Mix sugar and egg yolks.

Add flour and Cocoa.

Whisk in Milk, this is tedious, the cocoa will try to isolate itself, and fly everywhere.

Pour in Melted Butter.

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until very thick.

Use egg whites for meringue

OK, now, I mix the cocoa powder in the melted butter, then pour it in the milk mixture. I seem to have a softer pie that way.
