6 egg yolks
1 scant c. sugar
1 envelope of gelatin
1/2 c cold water
1 pint of cream
1/2 c dark rum
2 crumb pie shell(oreo is best)

Beat 6 egg yolks until light, and add 1 scant c. sugar.

Soak 1 envelope of gelatin in 1/2 c cold water. Put water and gelatin over low flame and bring to boil.

Pour over the sugar-egg mixture, stirring briskly. Whip 1 pint of cream until stiff.

Fold it in the slightly cooled egg mixture, and flavor with 1/2 c dark rum.

Cool until the mixture begins to set up and pour into a crumb pie shell. (This will usually make 2 or even 3 of the foil pie pans)

Chill or freeze - we like it best frozen. We also like it best in the chocolate Oreo crumb crust.

My Mom always makes this during the holiday's. Many friends ask her to make it.

Update about the rum. My sister said that she uses other liquor's. She has made a Butterscotch Schnapps's pie and it tasted really good. So you can experiment if you don't have Rum.
