    Source of Recipe


    1/2 c sugar
    1 tbsp cornstarch
    2 c scalded milk
    1/4 c cold water
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    4 egg whites
    9" baked pastry shell
    1 tbsp unflavored gelatin
    4 egg yolks, beaten
    1 tsp vanilla
    6 oz semi-sweet chocolate bits
    1/2 c sugar

    Combine cornstarch and 1/2 c sugar. Slowly add milk to egg yolks,
    then stir into sugar and cornstarch mixture. Cook in double boiler,
    stirring constantly, until it coats spoon. Remove from heat, add

    thickened. Beat eggs whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add

    into egg whites and pile over chocolate layer in pie shell. Chill
    until set and garnish with chopped walnuts.
