Burnt Sugar Pie

1/3 cup sugar
3 cups hot milk
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 to 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, to taste

3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup sugar

1 baked 9-inch pie shell

Place 1/3 cup of sugar in a saucepan over medium-high heat until
it melts and turns light brown. Remove the pan from the heat and
slowly add the hot milk, stirring until dissolved. In a small bowl,
sift the flour, salt, and sugar together. Place the egg yolks in
a small bowl, beat with a fork, and set aside. Slowly add the dry
ingredients to the hot mixture stirring over medium heat until it
is nearly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes, taking care not to scorch.
Add a small amount of the hot mixture to the beaten egg yolks, stir
and immediately pour the egg mixture into the hot mixture. Reduce
the heat to low and cook, stirring constantly until the mixture
thickens, 3 to 5 minutes more. Continue stirring until the mixture
boils gently for about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and strain
the filling into a bowl. Stir in the vanilla to taste and cool

Meringue: In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy.
Add the salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla and beat until stiff
peaks form. Gradually blend in the sugar until well combined.

Pour the filling into the baked pie shell. Top with the meringue
and and bake in a 400 degree oven for 5 to 8 minutes, or until
meringue is golden brown.

Serves 6 to 8.
