    Depression Chocolate Pie Recipe

    Recipe Description
    This is the recipe my grandmother made during the great depression, when folks had very little money and even less food. People had to use what they could get. One of my fondest memory's are of spending the summers with my grandmother in Tennessee and having this wonderful pie for dessert on Sundays.
