Introduction: Custard Pie

This Custard Pie is one of my husbands favorites! He absolutely loves this pie. It is like unto a creme brulee or flan. So if you like either of those you will love this.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  • nutmeg sprinkled on top, as much or as little as you would like
Pie crust
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup milk

Step 2: MAking Pie Crust

•  Using a pastry cutter: mix flour, shortening, and salt.
•  Add milk and form into dough
•  Roll out into a pie shape big enough to fit a 9" pie plate
•  Place in your pie plate and take a fork and poke hole in the bottom and around the sides(this prevents shrinking)

Step 3: Making the Pie
