Cashew-Crusted Caramel Cream Pie

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. For crust, in a food processor combine cashews and graham cracker crumbs. Cover and process with several on/off pulses to form fine crumbs. Add granulated sugar and melted butter. Cover and process with several on/off pulses to combine. Spread mixture in a 9-inch pie plate; press evenly onto bottom and sides. Set aside.
  2. In a medium heavy saucepan stir together brown sugar and flour. Whisk in milk and egg yolks. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in 2 tablespoons butter until melted. Stir in vanilla. Cover and keep warm.
  3. Prepare Brown Sugar Meringue. Pour warm egg yolk mixture into crust. Immediately spread meringue over warm filling, sealing to edges of crust. Use a spoon to swirl meringue into peaks.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until meringue is firm and golden. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour. Chill for 4 hours before serving; cover pie for longer storage.

From the Test Kitchen

Salted cashews add a nice flavor contrast to the sweetness of the pie.

Brown Sugar Meringue

Directions

  1. In a large bowl let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until soft peaks form (tips curl). Gradually add brown sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until stiff, glossy peaks form (tips stand straight) and brown sugar is dissolved.
