Texas Home Cooking

Grandma's Chocolate Pie

As I continue to live in China, I expand my recipes and experiment with anything and everything Texan. I happened upon a great website of a Texan expat living in New York. The site lists all sorts of Texas favorites. Click here to visit the site.

My new favorite dessert comes from this site: Grandma's Chocolate Pie. While I don't know whose grandma she is, she sure knows how to make a great chocolate pie. I don't think there is another dessert any better then this. (If you try the recipe out, note the one missing step to cook the pie for 30-35 minutes in order for the filling to set. Then add the merigne and cook again.)

Another great Texas favorite I recently discovered, or finally realized, that we had all the ingredients to make Chicken Fried Steak. So I got out the flour, tenderized the meat, and fried away. The meal was so great, I repeated the meal for M'Lynn's birthday and cooked it for our whole team! I also whipped up 2 chocolate pies to pass around at the party.

The pies are so good, I'll probably have to cook another one (or two) for my own birthday next month!
