Old Fashioned Custard Pie, 2 versions

It doesn't get much easier than this to make a delicious pie. Sometimes the simple things in life are all you need.  You probably have all of the ingredients available, if you're like me, and always have unbaked Pie Crusts in the Freezer for a last minute dessert like this. I love this pie. The second version makes it's own Crust as it Bakes.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
1 - unbaked Pie Shell, your choice.

3 Large Eggs, beaten
1/2 C Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Nutmeg + additional .
2 2/3 C Whole Milk
1 tsp Vanilla, the best you can afford!

In a large mixing bowl:
Beaten Eggs
Whisk well.

Pour into the Pie Shell.
Bake 35 - 40 minutes.
Remove to a rack to cool for 10 minutes.

Sprinkle with additional Nutmeg just prior to serving.
Serve with my favorite Homemade Whipped Cream. (recipe to follow)

Peace in the Kitchen!
