Easy as Pie
I once bought a book called Pie Every Day by Pat Willard while on vacation in Seattle. Sadly, I make pie only about 3-4 times a year.
Here's a recipe for a really good one:
1/4 cup Splenda for Baking
1/4 cup cocoa
2 cups milk
2 egg yolks beaten
1 baked pie crust
Combine dry ingredients and set aside. Mix milk and egg yolks together and whisk together with dry ingredients. Pour into a double boiler and cook until thickened. Cooking times vary; however, 10-12 minutes should be enough time. Pour into baked pie crust.
For the meringue, combine two egg whites with 1 tablespoon of Splenda for Baking and 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar. Beat with electric mix until soft peaks form. Spread on pie.
Place pie in a preheated 300 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until top is browned. Enjoy!
