The first step is preparing the graham cracker crust, which is a combination of graham cracker crumbs, sugar, and butter. The mixture gets pressed into a 9-inch pie dish and baked for 10 minutes. After it cools, the pudding is added.

To make the vanilla custard pudding, mix and heat the milk, eggs, sugar, and corn starch. Once the pudding thickens, remove it from the heat and whisk in butter and vanilla extract.

Pour the pudding into the graham cracker crust.

Beat the egg whites with a bit of cream of tartar and slowly add the sugar. Continue beating until stiff. Next, put the meringue on the hot pudding.

If desired, use a regular spatula to create peaks in the meringue. Do this by slightly pressing the spatula into the meringue and then pulling up quickly.

When the meringue is nicely peaked, return the pie to the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the meringue is lightly browned.

That’s it! You’ve made a Graham Cracker Cream Pie. You’ll want to give your pie plenty of time to cool and set before serving.
