Canadian Flapper Pie

This pie is a staple of Canadian prairie culture, consisting of a graham crumb pie crust that is filled with a creamy custard, then topped with an airy meringue.

The custard is usually made with milk, sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, vanilla, and salt, while the pie crust consists of graham crackers, sugar, butter, and maybe a bit of cinnamon

Crust:

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

 

Filling:

3 cups milk

1/2 cup white sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Meringue:

3 egg whites

2 tablespoons white sugar

 

 

DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE CANADIAN FLAPPER PIE

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).In a bowl, Mix the graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup sugar, melted butter, and cinnamon. Reserve 1/4 cup for topping the pie.

Press the remaining crumb mixture in the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 8 minutes.Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

In a bowl, whisk together the 1/2 cup sugar, cornstarch, egg yolks, and vanilla. When the milk is hot but not boiling, slowly pour the milk in a steady stream into the yolk mixture, whisking constantly.

Return the custard to the saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a spatula.Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat until the custard has thickened. Pour the custard into the graham cracker crust.

Preheat the oven’s broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.Beat the egg whites until medium peaks form; add 2 tablespoons of sugar and beat until the meringue is stiff.

Scoop out the meringue on top of the custard filling. Sprinkle the meringue with the reserved graham cracker crumbs.Place the pie under the broiler and bake until the meringue starts to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
