                                   Cream Pies

1. Make Single Crust Recipe - See attached recipe

2. Put Crust into the pan and flute the edges

3. If you are not using weights, prick the bottom and sides of the crust

4. (If you are using weights continue to step 5)

5. Place a sheet of foil in the bottom and on the sides of the crust (shiny side down)

6. If you are using weights (beans or store bought weights) put them in the bottom
   on top of foil.

7. Bake at 450 for 10-12 minutes

Meanwhile cook pudding according to directions
(Make sure you are stirring constantly and keeping the temp. low so it won't scorch.)

When pudding has finished cooking pour into baked pie shell.

As pudding is cooking make meringue.

1. Separate egg whites using an egg separator one at a time.

2. Do not break egg yolk. Egg yolks are high in fat and will not let the egg whites
   form peaks. (Also make sure you do not try to beat egg whites in a plastic bowl or
   a bowl that may have a greasy film on the sides. Plastic holds the grease on the
   surface)

3. Add cream of tartar and vanilla to egg whites.

4. Beat until foamy

5. Add sugar 1T. at a time, mixing well after each addition.

6. When egg whites have formed soft peaks, add a pinch of baking soda (no more
   than 1/8 t.) and mix in

7. Spoon meringue on to the sides of the hot filling and then in the center of the pie.

8. Swirl meringue to add decoration.

9. Bake in a 400 oven for 5 - 10 minutes or until lightly brown
