"This pie has been in my family for years; I have no idea who created it, but it's my favorite. The pie cuts and the slices retain shape when thoroughly cooled--if you can resist that long!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 1/2 cups
graham cracker crumbs
2 1/2 tablespoons
This was my first attempt at a Custard Pie. My husbands mother used to make it and they called it "graham cracker pie". It turned out pretty good, made the first one as a tester for hubby to try and then made the official one a few days later as a special treat for my brother-in-law. He loved it and said the meringue was better than his Mom made - quite a compliment.
I added a tsp. of vanilla and a tsp. of margarine to the second pie and it made the custard so much tastier. Used a store bought graham cracker crust and pre-baked it. Let the custard cool for 15 mins before filling pie crust.
Still had some 'seepage', a watery substance that I guess is normal for custard pies - anyone know what it is or what causes it?
I've been looking for this pie for years! A real kid favorite, however, I have cut the crust recipe in half, but that's our own family's taste. This is fabulous thank you!!
Flapper Pie was a favorite with my family as a child and my kids love it, too. This recipe is very close to mine but try adding 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the pie crust, and 1 tsp. of vanilla to the custard.
This recipe is okay, I liked it, but Flapper Pie I, (on this site)is 100 times better! I think it may be the difference in the crusts
Holy cow, this was delicious! I used this recipe over the other flapper pie recipe on this site because it uses exactly 3 whites and 3 yolks, instead of only 2 yolks. Immediately after baking, the custard part tasted a bit eggy and I regretted the extra yolk, but by the next day it had set better and was wonderful. I used a store-bought pie-crust because another reviewer complained about the crust listed here.
