Filling

3/4 cup sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups milk
2 squares baking chocolate
2 egg yolks, beaten
1 tsp vanilla

Meringue

3 egg whites
6 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

9-inch Pie Shell

See 9-inch Single Crust recipe.

Grate or cut chocolate into 2 cups milk, place in top of a double boiler to melt. Combine sugar, cornstarch, flour, and salt and blend with 1/2 cup milk. Cook mixture over boiling water, stirring constantly, for about 10 minutes, or until chocolate mixture has thickened. Continue to cook for about 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally.

Gradually stir half of the hot chocolate mixture into beaten egg yolks; return egg mixture to the double boiler, stirring well. Cook over boiling water, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour filling into a 9-inch baked pie shell.

Beat eggs until frothy. Add sugar gradually and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla. Spread on pie.

Bake in oven at 300 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until meringue starts to brown.
