OLD FASHIONED SILKY CREAMY CUSTARD PIE :

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In small bowl separate one egg white from egg yolk reserving both.
  3. Brush crust with beaten egg white and pre-bake for 7-8 minutes.  Let cool for 10 minutes.
  4. In large bowl whisk together 3 eggs plus the one spare yolk and whatever is left from the beaten egg white , sugar, salt, vanilla, cream and milk.
  5. Pour egg mixture into piecrust and sprinkle with nutmeg.  Bake for 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  6. Cool on a wire rack.  Store in refrigerator

NOTES

  • If available use fresh ground nutmeg because it so full of flavor
  • I pour the egg mixture into the pie crust very carefully right there in the oven while the piecrust is on the rack.
  • Do not over-bake. The pie should still be somewhat giggly.
  • This pie tastes and cuts best when chilled.
