Desserts Pies/pastry


  • 2 qt 40% cream
  • 6 Egg whites
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 1/4 ts Salt
  • 2 ts Vanilla
  • 1 2/3 c Sugar


: Hand beat egg whites until somewhat frothy. Combine flour, sugar and salt and add to egg whites; beat until smooth, losing grainy look. Add vanilla. Beat again. Add cream and stir until well blended. Have ready a baking dish, Pyrex or deep metal pan (milk pan) lined with a short pastry which has been chilled in refrigerator for some time. Pour cream mixture into crust and bake in a very slow oven, 250 ~275 degrees F., for 4 hours. It must not boil. Best done the day before and allowed to set. : This cream pie, a fifth or sixth generation recipe, has a custard like texture and a delicious flavor. A. K. (Binx) Gardner had the recipe from Mrs. Obadiah Gardner, his mother, who had it from her mother and grandmother. The pie is cooked in a very slow oven for 4 hours and allowed to set for at least another day before it is served. This is a large pie. A small "sliver" of the pie makes a good dessert.
