Flapper Pie Recipe

Making pie has never been my strong suit. I would always ask someone else to bring the pies to holiday dinners, or parties just because I didn’t want the fuss of making them. 

Thing is, my husband loves pie. He loves pie more than any other sweets that I make, so it was time to brush up on my pie making skills.

One of the first pies I ever made was a family favorite. It’s called Flapper pie. A Graham wafer crust, with homemade custard, topped with meringue. It’s incredibaly tasty, and I can honestly say, once you try it, you will want more.

 What you will need:

  • 1 1/4 cups of graham wafer crumbs
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/3 cup of melted butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 5 Tbsp. white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3 Tbsp. white sugar

First you want to make your pie crust. In a pie plate, mix together the graham wafer crumbs, 1/4 cup of sugar and the melted butter. Press into the plate and make sure to come up the sides a little bit. Place in the fridge to set. 

For the custard filling: Over a double broiler (or a heat proof bowl over a pot of boiling water) combine the egg yolks, milk, cornstarch, salt and 5 Tbsp. of sugar. Cooking over medium/high heat, stir constantly until the mixture thickens up. Careful not to burn it. It takes some time for the custard to thicken, but when it happens, it happens fast. Once thickened, remove from heat and let sit. 

In another bowl, whip egg whites and sugar together until stiff peaks form. 

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Now to put the pie together – Give the custard a quick stir, and pour it into the prepared graham wafer pie crust – top with meringue and bake in oven for about 10 minutes or just until the tips of the meringue are golden brown. 

Let cool and then set in fridge.

Serve!
