Pauline's Caramel Pie

This recipe is a treasured family favorite that I will attempt to make one day! (Pauline was Logan's paternal grandmother.) It is said that family members reserved slices of this pie befor the annual family reunion.

1 c. white sugar
butter the size of a walnut
2 well-beaten egg yolks
1 c. sweet milk [as opposed to buttermilk; it's a Southern thing!]
2 TBSP flour
2 TBSP carmelized sugar (instructions below)
2 egg whites for meringue
baked pie crust

To carmelize sugar: Place sugar in a tinfoil (pie) pan. Tilt to one side. Hold sugar over medium heat; stir constantly until melted and browned, but do not let burn.

Mix first five ingredients. Flavor with vanilla. Add carmelized sugar. Cook mixture over medium heat until thick and bubbly. Pour into pie shell.

Whip egg whites with a little sugar to make meringue for pie. Brown meringue in oven at medium heat (300 deg.).
