chocolate chess pie

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1 – 15 oz can evaporated milk
1/4 cup [softened] butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 – 9 inch unbaked pie crust
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Mix sugar and cocoa, [cream softened butter and sugar], beat the eggs then add to the sugar/cocoa mixture. Beat in the milk and vanilla. Pour in the 9″ pie crust and cook at 350 for 45 minutes. Cool completely. Pie will have a jiggle until cooled.

(notes from Laurie: cut the milk in half; it’s way too much. If you need any more, add from there. I had to make this with refrigerated milk too and it was fine. I’d also cook for an extra 15 minutes or so, maybe at a slightly lower temp.)
