4 egg yolks
4 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 pint whipping cream

Melt chocolate chips in a double boiler. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Beat in egg yolks with a spoon, one at a time. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Add sugar gradually. Add vanilla to chocolate mixture, then fold mixture into egg whites. Pour into baked pie shell and cool until firm. Cover with sweetened whipped cream.
