INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups scalded milk
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/3 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 9-inch baked pastry shell
  • Toasted slivered almonds

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix 2/3 cup sugar, flour, and salt. Gradually stir in milk and set over hot water. Stir until thoroughly thickened. Cover, and cook 10 minutes, stirring a few times to keep smooth.
  • Blend a small amount of hot mixture into slightly beaten egg yolks. Combine with mixture in double boiler. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add butter and almond extract.
  • Cool slightly; add slivered almonds. Pour into cooled, baked pastry shell. Cover with meringue made by gradually beating 1/3 cup sugar into stiffly beaten egg whites. Bake in moderate oven (350°F.) until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Chill.
  • Note: Meringue may be omitted and pie served with whipped cream. If pie is made with only 2 eggs, reduce sugar to 3/4 cup. Top with slivered almonds.
