This is one I definitely remember from childhood!  We used to pretend to get drunk eating it!  Aunt Kathleen had a copy and sent it off to me.


  • 1-1/3 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • l/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Pie Filling:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup dark rum
  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2/3 cup confectioner’s sugar

Use mixer and beat eggs with sugar and salt until well combined. Set bowl in pan of hot water, continue beating at high speed until well thickened, about 5 minutes.

Sprinkle 1 envelope unflavored gelatin over 1/3 cup dark rum or bourbon. Let stand 5 min. to soften. Beat this and liquor into egg mixture to combine well.

Remove bowl from hot water; let mixture cool, stir occasionally. In large bowl, beat 2 cups of heavy cream, add 2/3 cup confectioners sugar, beat until just stiff.

Gently fold cooled egg mix into cream until well combined. Turn into prepared pie shell, sprinkle with nutmeg.

This pie is utterly delicious!!!
