Flapper Pie for Eileen's 89th

These pies are so delicious...but they have to be made a day ahead as the custard cream filling needs time to set. Recipe to follow.

Flapper Pie Ingredients

yield - 1 pie

1 graham wafer crust

3 cups   milk
4            eggs ( separate eggs and save both the yolks & egg whites)
1 tsp.     vanilla
1/4 cup  corn starch
1/2 cup  white sugar
dash of salt

egg whites
cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar

Add all of the above into a heavy sauce pot. Whisk well and put on the stove to start heating. Turn heat to a medium high and continue to whisk while it heats up. It will take some time for the  flapper pie filling to thicken but be patient and the custard cream will thicken as it comes to the boil.  The custard cream will burn if it is left to thicken without stirring
