Do you remember the way our grandparents used to cook with wholesome ingredients that everyone knew by name? There weren’t box mixes and shortcuts. What you put in a cake you pulled directly off the farm or the farmers market. This Silky Creamy Custard Pie reminds me of my grandmothers cooking. When she cooked everything seemed to come together so quickly and easily yet tasted so extraordinary.
This delectable Custard Pie has six ingredients if you purchase an unbaked pie crust. I know what you are thinking Grandma would never do. You are right but times were different then and there was not as much distraction then as there is now.
How do you make Silky Creamy Custard Pie.
- In small bowl separate one egg white from egg yolk reserving both.
- Brush crust with beaten egg white and pre-bake for 7-8 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- In large bowl whisk together 3 of the eggs plus the one spare yolk and whatever is left from the beaten egg white , sugar, salt, vanilla, cream and milk
- Pour egg mixture into piecrust and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
