How to Make Basic Cream Pie Filling
- Mix flour and sugar in your sauce pan. Then add milk, salt, butter; slightly whip egg yolks until incorporated together and add to other ingredients in pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whip tool. When the mixture thickens and starts to come to a boil, remove from heat; add vanilla. Pour into pie shell.
- Variations: Chocolate pie - add 3 tbs cocoa to flour and sugar. For coconut, add 1 cup of coconut after removing from heat. For pineapple, add 1 small can drained, crushed pineapple after removing from heat. For lemon, add lemon juice to your "taste".
- Pour filling into baked pie shell. Serve with whipped cream, or top with Marshmellow Creme Meringue* and bake until meringue is lightly browned.
