The original recipe that I have, shows 3 egg yolks, beaten, not 3 eggs lightly beaten as shown above, This is an error, as it says to combine flour,sugar,salt, milk & egg yolks. You are using the yolks in the pie & the whites in ther meringue, only 3 eggs total.
I made two of these for thanksgiving and both of them were gone by the end of the night! Everyone loved them!! I would definetly make them again.
This is a great recipe. Taste just like my grandma use to make. Simple and easy. Recipe was very easy and was delicious.
