Directions

  1. Place graham crackers in a food processor; cover and process until fine crumbs form. Add butter and egg white; cover and process until blended. Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. For filling, in a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually stir in milk until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to pan, stirring constantly.
  3. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in blueberries and vanilla. Pour into crust.
  4. For meringue, in a small bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  5. Spread over hot filling, sealing edges to crust. Bake at 350° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour; refrigerate for 1-2 hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 8 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 4, 2015

"A heads up -- the prep time is longer than 20 minutes -- and 10 graham crackers are NOT enough. I made 2, and using 30, was barely able to get the minimum possible crust. I would recommend doubling the ingredients for that to get a decent crust. Other than that -- a great recipe! I almost didn't want to put the custard into the crust."
