How to make old fashion cream pie

How to make old fashion cream pie

In a small cooker, blend well: I c sugar and 1/3 c flour

Add 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup whole milk

Separate 3 eggs. Save those egg whites for the meringue! Add three egg YOLKS to the cream mixture

Whisk well

Cook over medium heat. Stir well while it gets warm and stir especially after the cream starts to thicken. This will take about 7-10 minutes so be patient and keep stirring

While your cream pudding is cooking, brown your pie crust. I use the recipe from my guides: Derby Pie.

Here is what the pudding looks like once it's thickened.

Once it's removed from heat and thick, add 2 Tb butter and a tsp pure vanilla.

Pour the pudding into pie shells. I made both kinds, vanilla and chocolate. If you want chocolate you add your semi sweet chips to the cream mixture as it warms and thickens.

Meringue: over a double boiler, take the 3 egg whites and 3/4 c sugar. Let that warm for 10 minutes. Then pour into mixer and beat w a pinch of cream of tarter. Whip until it holds stiff peaks

Big dollops of the meringue on top of pie

With a small spoon, Push meringue from the middle of pie to very edge of pie dish

It's important to cover meringue to edges well, otherwise when you brown off meringue it will shrink back away from pie

So get it to the very edge of pie dish

Bake at 375 for about 5-7 minutes. Keep checking it as it browns

Let cool (or not :) and enjoy!
