DIRECTIONS

  • Sift the flour and cornflour into a large heatproof bowl.
  • Stir in the eggs and Vanilla Extract.
  • Put to one side.
  • On the hob, place a large pot onto medium heat.
  • Pour in the milk, sugar and butter.
  • Stir over the heat until the sugar and butter has completely dissolved and melted.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the bowl slowly so you don't cook the eggs, stirring constantly.
  • Pour the combined mixture back into the pot and return to the heat.
  • Stir continuously until the mixture becomes thick (like the consistancy of meringue - it sort of all comes together suddenly).
  • Remove from the heat and pour immediately into the pastry case.
  • Smooth it out so that it is level.
  • Dust with cinnamon.
  • Leave to cool, and then store in the fridge until you can't stand it any longer and must have a slice!
