Old-fashioned Burnt Sugar Caramel PieFrom debbie919 8 years ago
How to make it
- Caramelize 3/4 c. sugar, stirring until it's melted and a nice caramel color. Set aside.
- Combine remaining 3/4 c. sugar, flour, egg yolks, and whisk in milk gradually until mixture is smooth.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens.
- Add the caramelized sugar, and stir like crazy!
- It will lump up, but it WILL melt and the mixture will be smooth again.
- Continue to cook and stir until smooth and very thick.
- Add vanilla, and a pat of butter, if you'd like.
- Pour into a baked 9 inch pie crust.
- Make meringue out of the egg whites, adding sugar to taste, and spread on top of pie. Bake until light brown.
- OR just forgo the meringue, and use whipped cream or whipped topping.
