Ms. Winnie's Chocolate Pie

“This recipe is from a neighbor that I used to love to visit when I was a child. She lived to be over 100 years old and was still baking just as active at the end of her life as she had been for years. She would let me help her in the kitchen and I think she fostered part of my love of baking.”
