Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Filling:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Meringue:
  • 3 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar (optional)

How to Make It

Preheat the oven to 375˚F. In a small bowl, stir together the graham crumbs, sugar and butter. Remove a couple spoonfuls and set aside. Press the rest into the bottom and up the sides of a pie plate and bake for 8 minutes, or until golden.

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Whisk in the milk and cook over medium heat until it bubbles and thickens. Remove from the heat and stir a spoonful of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks; quickly whisk back into the milk mixture and cook for another two minutes, until it thickens. Stir in the vanilla and pour into the crust.

To make the meringue, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until it holds soft peaks; gradually beat in the sugar, beating until it holds stiff peaks. Spread over the custard and sprinkle the extra crumbs over top. Return to the oven for 6-8 minutes, until golden. Cool and refrigerate for an hour before serving.
