Flapper Pie

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!

Ingredients:

Crust

  • 1 1/4 cups graham wafer crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Filling

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • Ad

  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 egg yolks; lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Meringue

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar

Directions:

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.

Those sounds good without the Meringue. It reminds me of my mom's Quebec sugar pie, which I like. :)
I want to try this but with some pecans or raisins of a little of both.
