"I received this recipe from a dear friend of mine 25 years ago," Ruth Rosenberg writes. "It is the best and easiest chocolate pie I have ever eaten."

3 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons sugar

4 eggs, separated

1 baked (8- or 9-inch) pie crust

Whipped cream, optional

Melt chocolate pieces, milk and sugar in saucepan. Add 4 egg yolks, 1 at a time, stirring until all ingredients are well blended. Cool.
