Another favorite from MawMaw. This holiday favorite was a favorite of all the grandchildren. My MawMaw would spend days getting ready. She would make small pies and large pies. The small pies were for the grandchildren and we were so excited that we each got our own little pie to enjoy. I tried for years to recreate her pies exactly, but mine just didn't have that "something". Then I remembered she used lard. So feel free to substitute the shortening.
DOUGH:3 cups all-purpose flour
2 large eggsFILLING:
1 cup sugar1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup milk1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp baking soda3 large egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp baking powder1 Tbsp butter, unsalted
1/8 tsp salt 
Mix eggs, sugar and shortening together. Beat well.
Add remaining dough ingredients together; mix until crumbly. Place dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until smooth. Refrigerate overnight.

Cook over low heat until thickened, stirring constantly.

Divide dough in half. Roll each half of dough and put into 9" pie plates. If desired, with remaining dough cut strips about 1/2" wide. Add filling to pie plate and crisscross strips across pie. Bake until light brown at 350°. Pie should no longer "jiggle".
