Serves 8
CRUST:
16 whole graham crackers
1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

To make crust: Crush graham crackers until you have fine crumbs. Mix 
all dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour melted butter over and mix well. 
Press crumb mixture into a 9-inch pie plate to fill the bottom and up 
the sides.
To make filling: Combine the ingredients in a saucepan and cook over 
medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened. Pour custard into 
prepared pie shell.
To make topping: Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until frothy. 
Gradually beat in sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling.
Bake in a 350-degree oven until meringue has browned, 12 to 15 minutes. 
Cool in refrigerator at least 2 hours before enjoying.
