Just in time to make for Christmas.
Drop by the shop to see what others holiday projects we have.
See you soon.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks, set aside. In a saucepan stir together sugar, flour and salt. While stirring gradually add milk. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until it bubbles around the edge of pan. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from heat. In a small bowl slightly beat the egg yolks. Temper eggs by adding a small amount ( a couple of tablespoons) of hot mixture into yolks. (I do this about 3 times) Return to pan and cook 2 minutes. Add vanilla, butter and egg whites. Cook and stir 1 minute.
Pour into cooled baked pastry shell. Place plastic wrap over pudding just touching the mixture. This keeps it from forming that thick dry layer on top. Cool.
Just a fun note. My grandmother baked my grandfather a pie every day for the first year they were married. Crazy huh?
