I am so glad I found this recipe! Friends of my parents used to make this for us when they would have us over for dinner. I did get the recipe from them over 40 years ago but I lost it probably ten years later! This was one of my favorite desserts!
I have been making this pie for around 20 years. It is always on the request list with the family. We switch it up with using the peppermint extract some times and excluding it others (for just a plain chocolate pie, so much better than the 'pudding version').
