This is a Thanksgiving tradition in my family.  It is loved by all and many of these pies are made each year.

Mud Pie

1 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Flour
1/3 cup Cocoa
2 Eggs
2-1/2 cups Milk
1/4 cup Margarine or Butter
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 cooked pie crust(s)
Whipped Cream (optional)
Chocolate Shavings (optional)

Mix together well the sugar, salt, flour and cocoa.  Beat the eggs until fluffy and stiff.  Add eggs to the mixture  Heat the milk slowly in microwave.  Add 1/2 of the milk to above mixture.  Mix well then add rest of milk.  Cook on low heat, covered, stirring often.  When thickened good (will be lumpy), remove from heat.  Beat with beaters until smooth.  Mix in the margarine and vanilla.  Chill in fridge then add to cooked pie crust.   Top with Whipped Cream and Shaved Chocolate if desired.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
