So, What's In The Box? Stewart Pie!

The box below will be full of great recipes passed down through the women in my family and here is just a small sample.

This recipe is over 200 years old and came to America with one of my great-grandma's from France.

It is sinfully rich and delicious!

Stewart Pie

8 eggs, separated
2 cups sugar
3 cups milk
1/2 cup pure butter
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 teaspoons vanilla

Cream together butter, egg yolks and sugar. Add milk, stir. Add cornstarch that has been dissolved in just a bit of water, stir. Add vanilla and mix well.

Beat egg whites until peaks form. Fold beaten egg whites into custard mixture.

Pour custard into two unbaked pie shells.

Bake at 375 degrees about 45 minutes until knife come out clean.
