This recipe is from my mother-in-law Betty who is actually up in heaven. She made the best flapper pie, and apparently so did her mom. I cheat a bit with it, as I do not make the graham crust from scratch. I simply buy the pre-made graham crust from the store. It is still delicious. I actually even made this last night.
Edmonton food blogger Karlynn Johnston has been sharing her recipes and travel experiences on her site, The Kitchen Magpie, for over seven years, and now, she's turned her favourites into a new cookbook, Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky, full of sweet treats, including this original, the flapper pie.

Farmer's Favourite Flapper Pie. Flapper pie is unique to the Canadian prairies, but is a classic that is served throughout farming season (or any time!). Buttery graham cracker crust, vanilla custard topped with meringue. Very messy, but very delicious!
