How to make the best old fashioned creamy custard pie:
- 4 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 unbaked pie crust (9 inches)
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp salt
Start by preheating the oven to 400 °F and separate the yolk from an egg, keep the egg white and yolk in a separate bowl.
Next, brush the unbaked pie crust with the egg white. Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven for approximately 8 minutes. After it’s done baking, take the pie crust out and let it cool for about 10 minutes.
Then, in another large bowl, mix the remaining eggs, egg yolk, salt, sugar, vanilla, milk, and cream.
Now, that the mixture is prepared, pour it into the pie crust and sprinkle the nutmeg lightly on top of the custard.
Finally, bake the pie for about 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. The pie should be set around the edges, but it should also slightly jiggle in the center when shaken.
Cool the pie on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy!
