    1                    Pastry shell, 9-inch -- , baked
      1/3  cup           All-purpose flour
      1/2  cup           Sugar
      1/8  teaspoon      Salt
    2      cups          Milk -- , scalded
    3                    Egg yolks
    2      Tablespoons   Butter or margarine

      1/2  cup           Sugar

 Blend peanut butter with confectioners' sugar until mealy. Sprinkle 2/3 of
 the mixture over baked pie crust. Combine flour, sugar and salt in the top
 of double boiler. Stir in milk. Cook over boiling water, stirring
 constantly until thickened. Stir small amount of cooked filling into egg
 yolks. Combine with remaining hot mixture; cook for several minutes more.
 Add butter and vanilla. Pour into pie shell. Top with meringue.
 Beat egg whites until stiff; add cream of tartar. Mix sugar with
 cornstarch. Add gradually; beat stiff. Pile on pie; sprinkle with remaining
 peanut butter mixture. Bake in 400F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until
 delicately-browned. Cool before serving.
 Yield: 6-8 servings.

 NOTES : I make the filling in the microwave oven instead of the double
 boiler, stirring the mixture several times during cooking.
 This is a delicious, light peanut butter pie, and the peanut butter/confec.
 sugar topping on the meringue is lightly crunchy, giving a nice contrast to
 the rest.
