KFC- Chess Pie

Every chess player should get a taste of this KFC Chess Pie.

1/2 cup butter- room temperature
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1 cup whipping cream
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Meringue (4 egg whites, 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar, 1/2 cup sugar)
1 9-inch unbaked pie shell
Preheat oven to 350 Celcius. Cream butter and sugar well. Add in egg yolks, whipping cream, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend well and pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake until a knife comes out clean when inserted into pie (about 45-50 minutes). Prepare meringue by beating egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy, then slowly adding sugar, beat until whites form stiff peaks. Spread over cooked filling to pie crust edge. Brown slowly in moderate oven for about 10 minutes.
