  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  1. This is very good just what I've been looking for. I usually make a cream pie so I'm used to a lot more filling and meringue. Next time I'll double the recipe which will take care of both problems for me. Definitely a keeper!
  2. I ended up having to triple this recipe to fill the pie crust. I added extra egg whites because we like our meringue piled high. The pie tasted good and I will make this again. I gave it 3 stars only because I had made and poured the first batch before I realizes that I - Read more ...
  3. I made this pie tonight I haven't tasted the finished product however the chocolate custard is very good. One BIG note however if you are trying to fill a 9" pie crust you MUST TRIPLE the recipe. I wound up making 2 batches one regular (which only filled about 1/2" of the bottom of the - Read more ...
  4. The pie was very good but since I've worked in kitchens all my life I knew that this recipe needed some tweaking. when making the meringue the recipe doesn't specifically tell you how many egg whites. and two will hardly do the job if you like meringue. If I am going to go through the - Read more ...
  5. The Meringue Recipe turns out runny and is not user friendly to new cooks who do not realize that meringue should be beat with only the egg whites for a long while before adding the sugar. However the recipe could be reformated to make a wonderful Chocolate Meringue Pie.
  6. Super easy and a real crowd pleaser. Non-baker-types are always soooo impressed with any type of meringue and just have no idea how long it takes! I have a very small apt and can only cook 2 9" pies at a time in an oven and I easily made 10 of these babies in just - Read more ...
  7. This recipe didn't work for me. It didn't set up well and was sickningly sweet. There wasn't enough merengue until I added 3 more egg white. This one is not a keeper for us.
  8. Maybe I made some huge mistake but this recipe did not work for me at all. The chocolate pudding filling never did become the consistancy of pudding. I had to add lots more flour to get it thickened. There was not enough filling for the crust so I added layers of banana to fill it - Read more ...
  9. Very good but is like a fudge pie instead of cream.
