FLAPPER PIE is a dessert creation unique to the Canadian Prairies. It was in every housewife’s cooking repertoire. For several very good reasons. One – it was easy to make with a never fail graham cracker crumb crust. Second – twelve months of the year you had the ingredients in your kitchen. And last of all – this nursery food with just a few ingredients – was adored by all who had the good fortune to enjoy it for dessert. When I first made flapper pie I used a hand egg beater to whip the egg whites. It was a physical workout. Then I acquired a Sunbeam MixMaster. I was in cooking heaven. I could whip up one of these delicious pies faster than you could drink a pot of tea. Flapper Pie did have one draw-back. It didn’t keep well. Sadly you were forced to consume it all the day you made it. That said if you could not accomplish this feat – soft crust and all it was still not bad the next day.
