I have never made flapper pie before but my mom made it often and we all loved it! When I saw this recipe I had to givit a try for old times sake and it did not disappoint! I used only 1/2 c. sugar in the graham crust and instead of icing sugar in the topping used 2 Tablespoons of sugar. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T and it tasted just as good as mom's!! It was easy to make and uses ingrdients normally found in my kitchen. I will be making this again! Thanks for a great recipe!

I have made Flapper pie often but never followed a recipe. I decided to try this one for the exact measurements. I did make a batch and a half only because I wanted more filling. I used half 1% milk and half... half and half. (thats what I had on hand) It was very creamy and gone before too long. Great recipe, thanks

This was Mom's recipe as well. This was one of my favorite pies, which once I could doing desserts for our family, this recipe was one I tried. Makes me hungry!
