My husbands Aunt shared this recipe with me years ago. My husband loves it about as much as my peach cobbler. So easy to make. It helps though if you have someone melt the sugar while you make the pudding type mixture. I serve mine with whipped cream & chopped pecans, she served hers with meringue. Either way is great!

Enjoy!

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
milk
1 c
sugar - equally divided
3
egg yolks - save whites if making meringue
3 Tbsp
flour
1 tsp
vanilla
pinch
salt
8 - 9
inch prebaked pie crust
chopped
pecans & whipped cream - optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, start heating milk over low.

In a bowl, mix yolks, 1/2 cup sugar, salt and flour until smooth.

Once milk is hot and simmering whisk in the flour mixture, until smooth and remain stirring until thickened, which wont take long.( it should be the consistency of pudding, )
2
Melt the remaining sugar in a skillet, stirring often. Add this to the milk mixture, it will bubble, keep stirring until dissolved. Remove from stove and stir in vanilla.
3
Pour caramel mixture into baked pie crust. You can make meringue with the left over egg whites and bake until browned.

I just add whipped cream as we don't care much for meringue.

Chill well and serve.
