Today I made my first love's
He was kind and gentle
had a warm and welcoming smile
Dark brown kind eyes
Loved his family with all his heart!
That was my dad.
His very favourite pie was Chocolate Pie
and just about any other pie
that my mom made.
|Chocolate Pie surrounded by vintage Valentine cards that my dad received during his school days (circa 1920's)|
I used my mom's recipe
and this is how she wrote it in her
Makes 2 pies
4 Cups milk (she always used whole milk) – heated to boiling point
1 Cup “good full” of Brown Sugar
4 Tbsp. Flour – heaping
2 Tbsp. Cocoa
Mix with 1 Cup of Milk – add into remaining hot milk and cook till thickened. Add vanilla, salt and some butter.
Pour into baked pie crust, cool and top with whipped cream.
Foot note - My sweetheart likes this pie too!
Till next time ...... this is my February edition pie
