Chocolate Meringue Pie

Chocolate Meringue Pie

Today’s recipe is an old family recipe for Chocolate Meringue Pie.  It actually belonged to my grandmother and I am lucky enough to have the recipe written in her own handwriting!

It is also so fun to have this photo of my Grandma Zola in her little kitchen in Southern California. I so remember that kitchen but didn’t remember how tiny it was. I love seeing her cast iron skillets hanging on the wall!!

That’s my mom’s handwriting where it says Excellent. Guess my mom really likes it. After making it for the FIRST time this week I can see why.
