“This is a rich, fluffy egg custard type pie. My Grandfather loved this pie and the recipe has been handed down through the years. You can cut the sugar in half if so desired. This pie calls for lemon extract, but doesn't taste like lemon.” - by LIZBETH
Original recipe yields 2 - 9 inch deep dish pies
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- In a large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Set aside. In a separate bowl, cream together margarine and sugar. Mix in flour, then 1/2 cup milk. Add egg yolks, vanilla extract, and lemon extract. Mix until smooth, then stir in the remaining 1 cup milk.
- Gently fold egg whites into milk mixture. Pour half of mixture into each pastry shell.
- Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
