The secret to a happy life:
love wherever you are,
do only what you love
and love everything you do.

Making Flapper Pie
The Danbo Brothers caught wind of my plans to make a Flapper Pie today and hung around the kitchen all morning waiting for me to start. They just love doing anything in the kitchen. In fact, as far as I can tell, the Danbo Brothers seem to enjoy everything they do. For them, there is no such thing as work—it’s all simply just play. No matter how hard they work, it’s all fun and games to them.
The first thing to do when making a Flapper Pie is to crush your graham crackers into crumbs for the pie crust. I enlisted the Danbo Brothers’ help to load up the food processor with graham crackers for me. It’s true, I could have done it myself in a fraction of the time it took them to make the nine trips to the food processor with nine loads of crackers, but then we would all miss out on a lot of fun, wouldn’t we?
Flapper Pie was commonly made in households across the Canadian prairies during the 1950’s to 1970’s. It is a vanilla custard pie with a graham wafer crust and a meringue topping. My Mom made it often. It was my favourite childhood dessert and I still love it today.
