Keisha Pittman McKinney: Grandma Shirley’s Chocolate Pie

Keisha Pittman McKinney shares her chocolate pie and the sweet story behind how it came to be such a family favorite.

So, I figured out pretty quickly that pie was the quickest way to Mr. McKinney’s heart. And more specifically his mama/Grandma’s chocolate pie.  Its makes an appearance at every holiday, birthday, or when he is home and just says, “mom, I think pie would be really good.”  My grandmother made pies and frankly pies are my favorite dessert too, so I was so ok with that. 

Heck, we love pies so much, we threw cake out the window in our wedding planning and had a pie bar instead! I found out who made the best homemade chocolate pies in the town where we got married and I hired a “grandma” to make about 30 chocolate pies that she delivered the morning of our wedding. It was perfection!
