Cocoa Pie

Total Time

Prep: 30 min. + chilling


8 servings

I belong to several senior groups, and my Cocoa Pie always receives compliments when I bring it to their covered-dish luncheons. These days, I especially like recipes such as this one that are quick to make and require ingredients I have on hand.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 deep-dish pie crust (9 inches), baked
  • Whipped cream


  1. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, flour, cocoa and salt. Add water; mix well and cook until thickened. Remove from the heat; add vanilla and butter. Cool slightly. Pour into pie crust. Refrigerate. Garnish with whipped cream.
