Lincoln County’s Black Jack Pie Recipe

1 9-inch baked pie crust

2/3 C. sugar

1/3 C. cornstarch

1/4 t. salt

3 C. milk

3 eggs, separated

1 T. butter

2 t. vanilla

4 T. cocoa

9 T. sugar, divided

2 T. Jack Daniel’s Whiskey

Prepare pie crust and cool. Combine next four ingredients in saucepan. Separate eggs (reserve whites for meringue). Beat egg yolks and add to ingredients in saucepan; blend well. Stir mixture over medium heat until it boils. Stir and boil for 1 minute, being careful not to let it burn. Remove from heat and stir in butter and vanilla. Combine cocoa, 3 tablespoons sugar and Jack Daniel’s Whiskey; add to filling. Return to heat, stirring constantly, just until it starts to boil again. Remove from heat; pour into prepared pie crust.

Preheat oven to 350°F. While pie is still hot, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add 6 tablespoons of sugar and beat until stiff. Spread meringue over pie, carefully sealing edges to crust. Bake for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool.

Makes 6 to 9 servings.
