From my Grandmother's Recipe Box: French Cream Pie (a fruit and cream ice box pie)


French Cream Pie

1/2 lb. graham crackers - rolled fine - butter a cake pan (large) put in 1/2 of the crax crumble. 
1/2 c butter (very soft) add 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 unbeaten eggs, mix thoroughly and pour over crax crumbs.

Whip 1 pt. cream add to 2 cups diced peaches and 1/2 cup nutmeats.
Pour over the egg mixture then cover with rest of crax crumbles.

Let stand 12-24 hours in ice box or a cool place.  

Serves 12 generously. 
Can use other fruit instead of peaches but I like peaches best of any I've tried.
