This has been my grandma's signature recipe. Back in the 40s she would make three of these every day for her family. A little over dedication but the recipe is definitely tried and true.

How to Make Cream Pies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Combine the flour, sugar and salt together in a saucepan. If doing a chocolate pie also add extra sugar and cocoa powder.
  • 2Pour in milk one cup at a time. Make sure you mix this up very well or it will be lumpy. Adding the milk slow helps with this. When smooth, add juice if not doing a chocolate pie.
  • 3Cook on medium high heat stirring constantly until the pudding is thick enough to leave peaks.
  • 4Take off heat and add vanilla and butter. Stir till blended.
  • 5For Meringue (Optional)
  • 6Place egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • 7Gradually add sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
  • 8Pour pudding into prepared pie crust of your choice, adding the meringue if you choose, and bake for 10 minutes at 350. Serve warm or cold.
