Baking frenzy Dessert pies

Meringue chocolate pie

I had heard about this wonderful dish “pie” but did not venture  to make it before due to the lack of know how until one day my Foodie+ friend +Tom Anita Morgan had posted a recipe of this amazing looking dish lemon pie .It was a trigger for me as the next day was the festival of “Raksha Bandhan” which is celebrated through out India .In this festival,a sister ties a sacred thread on the hand of her brother praying for his well being while the  brother in turn pledges to protect her.After the ceremony generally there is a grand feast among the family members and I was looking for an innovative dessert idea.My brother is specially fond of sweets and innovative desserts.I was planning to follow the recipe but egg yolks got exhausted as I had used them for making homemade mayo for another dish.
Then  decided to make this chocolate filling and it was amazing and everybody enjoyed it.I will like to thank Tom for this recipe.
