Flapper Pie From Heaven

This recipe is from my mother-in-law Betty who is actually up in heaven.  She made the best flapper pie, and apparently so did her mom.

I cheat a bit with it, as I do not make the graham crust from scratch.  I simply buy the pre-made graham crust from the store.  It is still delicious.  I actually even made this last night.

Flapper Pie


  • 1 1/2 cups graham crumbspre-made crust
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • pinch of cinnamon

Mix together in a bowl and press into a pie plate.  I like to also brush a light coating of egg white over the crust and bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes and set aside to cool.


  • 1/2 cup sugarstirring while it thickens
  • 4 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix ingredients in a medium sized pot and heat on medium.  Stir constantly until quite thick.

Pour into crust and let sit to cool.
