This is one pie that everybody wants around the Smith holiday table.  It takes simple ingredients and careful care to make, but it is oh, so delicious!

1. T. corn meal
1/4 t. salt
1/4 c. butter
1 t. vanilla

Place pie shell in pie plate, pressing down around the top edges with a fork or with your index finger.

Mix together in mixer: 2 c. sugar, 1 T. flour, 1 T. corn meal and 1/4 t. salt. Blend completely for 30 seconds. Add 1/4 c. butter, 1 t. vanilla, 3/4 c. milk and eggs–one at a time. Blend for one minute more.

Pour mixture into pie shell and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes, until top is browned. (At high altitude, we turned the temperature down to 325 degrees.
