The Old Fashioned Custard Pie

We recommend partially baking the pie shell before filling. Your crust will have a better bake and will be less soggy. If you don’t have pie weights, use dried beans or raw rice.


  • 1 unbaked pie shell (I use Marie Callendar’s deep dish)

  • 3 large eggs

  • ½ cup of sugar

  • ½ teaspoon of salt

  • ½ teaspoon of nutmeg

  • 2-2/3 cups of milk

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

How to prepare:

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Beat your eggs slightly, then add sugar, salt, nutmeg, and milk. Beat well and poor into the unbaked pie shell. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Sprinkle the top of pie with fresh ground nutmeg and serve.
