Pastor Barry's Favorite Chocolate Pie

Sometimes Mr. Wonderful gives subtle hints, sometimes not so subtle! We were at a Lifegroup (Sunday School) party a couple of weeks ago. Members were allowed to ask the "Pastor" anything they wanted either church related or personal. There were questions about ministry, about his personal quiet time and favorite authors, etc. But the last question was "What is your favorite dessert?" Mr. Wonderful said my wife's chocolate pie and I haven't had any in a while! Yeah, not so subtle.

I have been making this pie for a long time. Did your local small town newspaper ever featured various people and their favorite recipes?. Well I still have the copy from when I was featured 20 years ago and this is one of the recipes I shared.

Now, I would like to tell you that I made this crust from scratch, but I did not! I had one that you buy in the refrigerated section of your grocery. Although I have made them before, sometimes convenience, is well more convenient!

Lots of patient stirring is involved, but then goodness happens.

When I pre baked my shell it shrunk in the pie pan, I did the best I could and went ahead and used it because perfection is not required!

I topped with meringue.

It is usually a little thicker, but with the crust shrinking I didn't use all of the filling. Oh well, the hubby said it didn't change the taste. I hope you will try this recipe and enjoy it with your family. Who knows maybe it will become a favorite and you will get a few not so subtle hints! The printable recipe for Pastor Barry's Favorite Chocolate Pie found here.
