Introduction: Easy Custard Pie
You can use store bought crust or make your own, which ever is easiest for you :)
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
1 pie shell, 9 inch (either unbaked or baked, see note below), this time I use store bought ready to use (at Walmart)
2 1/3 c milk
1/2 c sugar
a pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla essence
a pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Heat milk until scalded, turn down heat
In a bowl, stir eggs briskly with a fork or spoon then mix in sugar, salt and vanilla. Slowly stir into hot milk
Sprinkle pie shell with nutmeg and pour filling into the shell. Bake on the bottom shelf of your oven for 450 F for 10 minutes then lower the temperature at 325 F and bake for half hour (knife inserted comes out clean).
Cool before slicing.
NOTE: if you are using unbaked pie shell, grease the inside of the shell with softened butter or margarine (or even lightly beaten of 1 egg white. You can also sprinkle the nutmeg after you pour filling into the shell before baking.
