  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (chilled)
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 5 tablespoons ice water

  • MERINGUE TOPPING:
  • 3 egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
Directions
CRUST:
  • See the Single Pie Crust recipe for instructions on preparing the crust for this pie.
  • Bake pie crust for approximately 30 minutes, according to Single Pie Crust directions before adding the filling.
FILLING:
  • In a medium size saucepan, add the milk, sugar, cornstarch, salt, and egg yolks. Stir ingredients until blended, and then over medium heat bring this mixture to a boil and cook until thick.

MERINGUE TOPPING:
  • Allow egg whites to become room temperature. Beat egg whites on high until they form a soft peak. While continuing to beat, add in the salt and then add the powdered sugar a couple of tablespoons at a time.
  • Beat until the meringue forms stiff peaks. Add cream of tartar and beat just enough to mix thoroughly. Do not over beat.
  • Spoon the meringue on top of the pie filling and spread evenly over the pie, making sure it is spread so that it is touching the crust around all the edges. Make small peaks in the meringue to give it a finished appearance.
  • Place the pie into an oven preheated to 350°F. Bake until meringue is lightly browned, approximately 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.

This is a good spaghetti recipe that doesn't take much time and contains few ingredients.
Easy Spaghetti and Sauce Recipe
PREP: 30 minutes
COOK: 30 minutes
READY IN: 1 hour
Ingredients
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onions
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 can tomato soup
  • 1 can tomato juice (46 oz.)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 to 2 lbs. of vermicelli pasta (or thin spaghetti)
  • grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Directions
  • Brown the ground beef in a large frying pan. Add the onions to the ground beef as it is cooking; salt and pepper to taste. Drain the grease but leave the meat in the pan that it is browned in.
  • Pour the tomato soup into the pan with the ground beef and then add the tomato juice. If all the juice doesn't fit, set it aside to add later. Stir until the soup and juice are well mixed.
  • Bring the mixture to a full boil and then turn down to a slow boil (a little more than a simmer). Add the sugar and butter; stir to distribute evenly.
  • Continue to cook the sauce. If there was tomato juice left in the can, add this juice as the sauce boils down. Continue to add the juice until you have added the entire can. The sauce is done when you have added all the juice and allowed it to boil slowly for at least 5 minutes. The longer it cooks the thicker it will become.
  • Cook the spaghetti while the spaghetti sauce is boiling. When the spaghetti is done the sauce should be ready. Drain the spaghetti but do not rinse. Serve immediately while the spaghetti is hot. If the spaghetti sets for a while it will begin to stick together. If this happens, just rinse it with hot water to loosen it up again.
  • We just have everyone fill their plates with spaghetti and add the amount of sauce they desire. We place the Parmesan cheese on the table for the ones who want to add it. The spaghetti and sauce are great served with garlic toast.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups whole milk or half and half (or a mixture)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Mix all ingredients together well and divide among 4,  6 oz  (or 6  4 oz) custard cups or ramekens. Arrange the filled cups in a baking pan large enough to hold them without crowding. Pour enough hot water into the baking pan  to reach about half way up the cups.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes in preheated oven. Custard should be just a bit wiggly in the center when removed from the oven. Eat warm or cold.
