I've had this recipe in my files for manymany years and I don't know the source. The pie is fairly basic and I've seen similar recipes. Most Southern cooks will have a chocolate pie recipe in their collection. I'v e added the use of Dutch processed chocolate which makes the filling very dark. I also add some flavored instant coffee powder which I think magnifies the chocolate flavor.
1unbaked pie crust
1stick unsalted buttermelted
1/4cupDutch processed unsweetened cocoa
1/4cupall purpose flour

Set the pie crust aside.
Whisk the eggs and sugar well in a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until smooth. Pour into the unbaked pie crust.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the filling is done. Remove from the oven when done and cool completely before cutting. It's normal for the filling to rise and then fall once it's cooled.
