This Chocolate Angel Pie is worthy of a special occasion! The melt in your mouth meringue crust is filled with a luscious chocolate cream!

My husband’s aunt was a terrific cook. She made this dreamy  Chocolate Cream Pie with a Meringue Crust for us as newlyweds and I was delighted to add the recipe to my collection!

It is one of our holiday traditions to have a chocolate pie (are you surprised?) at Thanksgiving along with pumpkin. This pie would work equally well as a Christmas dessert with its heavenly meringue crust and creamy chocolate filling.  Bill’s Aunt Alice would make this chocolate delight when we dined at her house…she’d always have a homemade dessert…and her pies were outstanding. And I’d go home with a recipe card in my purse that would soon become splattered from overuse.

The kids don’t remember ever having this pie. I guess I need to go through my old fashioned recipe box and pull out some more treasured dishes and share the memories along with the recipe.

PRO-Tip: Your bowl and beaters must be scrupulously clean when beating egg whites. Any oil will prevent the whites from reaching stiff peaks. You will also get more volume from your egg whites if they are at room temperature.
