Add 1 3/4 cups milk; then combine with hot syrup and cook over hot water until thick and smooth, then cook 15 minutes longer, stirring constantly. Stir a small amount of mixture into beaten egg yolks, return to double boiler, and cook a few minutes longer. Add butter and vanilla. Cool. Pour into baked pie shell. Top with a meringe.
