Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray or lightly grease with butter. Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix together pretzel crumbs, melted butter, and sugar.
Press into the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan. Bake at 350F for abut 8 minutes. Set aside to cool.
In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, whisk together brown sugar and flour. With stove on medium-low heat, whisk in milk slowly. Stir frequently until the mixture thickens. (This may take awhile.)
Temper the egg yolks by slowly streaming in a tiny bit of hot liquid and whisking rapidly. Keep adding hot liquid until mixture is all hot. Then add all back to the pot and cook another three minutes.
Let filling cool slightly before pouring into the crust. Smooth out top. Refrigerate for a few hours or until ready to serve.
