Flapper pie is, simply put, a graham cracker crumb filled with custard and topped with meringue. It is a staple of the Canadian prarie provinces and has a long legacy of family recipes passed down through the generations. Flapper pie is relatively simple and resembles a cream pie, however the graham cracker crust is what gives this “pie” it’s unique flavour and texture. Try it for yourself and thank Manitoba for coming up with this delicious dessert!

How to Make Flapper Pie:

  1. Mix all the crust ingredients together, save about 2 tbsp to the side and press the rest into a 10 inch pie plate, in the bottom and up the sides.
  2. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes..
  3. Combine the filling ingredients together and cook on a medium heat until it boils and thickens, making sure to stir constantly!
  4. Set aside to cool while you make the meringue.Beat the meringue ingredients together until they form stiff peaks.
  5. Pour the filling into the crust and top with the meringue, making beautiful little spikes that will brown up all lovely on top! Sprinkle the rest of the crumbs on the top and slide into a 350 degree oven.
  6. Bake until the meringue browns like below, around 5-10 minutes but watch it carefullymas it could burn easily!Cool in the fridge and eat the same day.
  7. Take the pie out of the oven and place on a cooling rack. When the pie is cool, it is ready to serve.
