Snow White Graham Cracker Pie

My Grandmother used to make a graham cracker pie.  The crust did have brown 
sugar in it, but the filling was different than other pie fillings.  It was 
snow white, creamy, and very sweet.  I am suspecting she used whipping cream 
in the mixture.  It was not yellow at all, so I don't think she used egg 
yolks.  All the other recipes I have found use egg yolks.  If you can help 
with any suggestions, that would be great.  I LOVE your site!

Hello Mary,

See below for several possibilities.

20 single or 10 double graham crackers

Crush graham crackers, melt butter.  Mix brown sugar, butter, graham 
crackers. Take out 1/4 cup for top, put crumb mixture in bottom of 8 x 8 x 2 
pan.  Heat milk, add beaten egg yolks.  Mix flour and sugar and pour slowly 
into milk mixture, stirring as you add to prevent lumping.  Cook until 
thick.  Add salt and vanilla.  (This microwaves well.)  Beat egg whites 
until stiff, adding 1/4 cup sugar.  Pour custard into crumb lined pan.

Would die to know the light chocolate filing in their chocolate cake. Any 


Hello Richard,

When Van de Kamp's Bakery closed its doors in 1990, the owners must have collected all the recipe books and locked them up, and they must have sworn all the bakers to secrecy. In all the years I have been doing this, I have found next to nothing, including the filling recipe you want. Sorry.

I'll post this for reader input. Someone might know a "tastes-like" recipe."
