1 cup sour cream
2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar mixed with 2 Tbsp of flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp cloves or allspice
Continue cooking on low, stirring constantly or it will scorch easily, until thickened. Pour into pie crust or pudding cups.
For pie, make meringue with egg whites. Beat until stiff, gradually adding 4 Tbsp sugar.
Spread meringue onto pie, making sure to touch crust.
