How to make it
- Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add egg yolks and stir. Add milk. Cook slowly until thick, stirring constantly. After pudding is thick, add butter and vanilla. Pour into cooled, baked pie shell. (HINT) I started using the PIllsbury rolled crusts in the grocery stores instead of making my own....they are excellent.
- For the meringue:
- Beat 4 egg whites with 1/2 teaspoon baking powder until stiff. Add 1/2 cup sugar and blend well. Cover pie with mixture. Make sure to seal the filling to edge of crust or pie will weep. Brown in oven 15 minutes.
