Butterscotch Pie

(given to me by my friend Cbuns!)

3 tbl butter or margarine
3 tbl flour
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup brown sugar...packed
2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs separated....whites set aside to warm to room temp...beat egg yolks
1 9 in. baked pie crust
2 egg whites
1 tbl confectioners sugar
1 tsp vanilla

In saucepan, over low-med heat, mix butter and flour well: add milk, stirring constantly. Add brown sugar. Add beaten egg yolks to mixture, mixing well. Continue stirring while mixture reaches a boil and cook for 2 minutes more after reaching a boil. Continue stirring. Turn heat off and add vanilla, consistency will be thick. Pour thickened mixture into baked, cooled crust. MERINGUE: Beat egg whites, add sugar and vanilla, beat until stiff. Top pie with meringue, covering entire pie. Place pie under broiler until meringue is golden brown. (This does NOT take long...maybe 2 min.) cool and serve!
