  • PIE CRUST:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening (chilled)
  • 4 tablespoons cold butter
  • 5 tablespoons ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 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.

  • 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.
