   "In eastern Canada, this recipe was called Graham Wafer Cream Pie, but
   westerners knew it as Flapper Pie. ... Cream pies like butterscotch,
   banana, cream and coconut cream were favorites of this decade and
   restaurants (called cafes in the West and usually run by Chinese
   cook/owners) always had cream pies on their menus.
   
   Combine crumbs, sugar and cinnaomn; blend in butter. Set 1/4 c aside. Press
   remainder onto bottom and sides of 9 inch pie plate. Bake in 375F oven for
   8 minutes; cool.
     Filling: In saucepan, mix sugar with cornstarch; blend in milk. Cook over
   medium heat, stirring, until boiling; stir a little into yolks, then retUrn
   to the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring, for 2 minutes or until
   thickened. Remove from heat; add vanilla and cool slightly. Pour into pie
   crust.
     Meringue: Beat egg whites with cream of tartar till soft peaks form;
   gradually beat in sugar until stiff peaks form. Spread over filling,
   sealing to crust. Top with reserved crumbs. Bake in 400F oven for 5 minutes
   or till lightly browned. Cool to room temperature, about 4 hours.
