This classic meringue-and-custard dessert originated in the American South around the turn of the twentieth century. The bottom layer of chocolate pastry cream was thought to signify the dark, swampy lowlands lying along the Mississippi River.

    Love this pie! Not really caring for rum, I added coconut extract instead and it occurred to me that this could be an awesome chocolate coconut pie. Thoughts for next time!

    I made this pie after I saw Martha make it on a re-run of "Living". It's so good--rich, creamy, and chocolaty down below, with a light cloud-like texture up top. Divine!
