Many people do not put a meringue on, but opt for buttered or sweetened graham wafer crumbs sprinkled on top. Either way you serve it, it's good!
Crust: Combine crumbs, sugar and cinnamon; blend in butter. Set 1/4 cup aside. Press remainder onto bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie plate. Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven for 8 minutes; cool.
Filling: In a saucepan, mix sugar with cornstarch; blend in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until boiling; stir a little into yolks, then return to the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat; add vanilla and cool slightly. Pour into pie crust.
Meringue: Beat egg whites with cream of tartar till soft peaks form; gradually beat in sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling, sealing to crust. Top with reserved crumbs. Bake in 400 degree F oven for 5 minutes or till lightly browned. Cool to room temperature, about 4 hours.
