Old-fashioned CUSTARD PIE



1 ready-to-use pie crust

3 fresh eggs

½ cup of white sugar

A pinch of salt, about ½ tsp

A dash of nutmeg, plus some for garnishing

2-2/3 cups of milk

1 tsp of authentic vanilla extract

Let’s Get Baking:


Start by warming your oven to 350°F.

In a cozy mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs, using either a hand mixer or good ol’ whisk.

Gently blend in the sugar, salt, a touch of nutmeg, milk, and that aromatic vanilla, mixing until it’s smooth. Don’t worry if it seems a bit runny – it’s supposed to be that way.

Carefully pour your mixture into the pie crust, ensuring it spreads evenly.

Pop it into the oven and let it bake to perfection for around 35-40 minutes.

Once it’s golden and set, pull it out and let it cool down to a comfortable room temperature.

For the final touch, sprinkle a little nutmeg on top, slice up, and get ready for a trip down memory lane. Enjoy!
