Chocolate Meringue Pie
Chocolate is a universal comfort food. I have not run into many people who dislike chocolate. Here's a dessert that will sure to please your family or guest.
2 eggs, separated
1/4 cup self-rising flour
1/3 cup chocolate syrup
1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
2 cup whole milk
1 9-inch prepared pie crust
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Combine egg yolks, flour, chocolate syrup, 1 cup sugar, and milk in a microwave-safe bowl. Stir, microwave at high power for 4 minutes; repeat process twice. Pour mixture into pie shell. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 375℉.
Add egg whites and cream of tartar to a large bowl; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in remaining sugar and vanilla. Mound meringue atop pie; covering filling completely. Bake until meringue is lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Chill before serving.
