Adopted Recipe. When I tried the recipe I used the suggestions in the reviews, and increased the nutmeg from the original 1/8 teaspoon to 1/4 teaspoon, and also added 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, which was not called for in the original recipe. Use more if desired.

  1. Beat eggs well in a large bowl, then add milk, salt, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla.

I've been looking for this recipe for years! I used to make it in Australia but since I've been here I've had no luck. The only suggestions I would make is to add more nutmeg, use a deep dish pie shell and if you put the pie shell on a cookie sheet and put it into the heated oven FIRST, then pour the mixture in you will have less spills. I almost set my smoke alarm off!

One of the best custard pies I have ever had.

This pie was delicious!!! It has a nice brown top. I wasn't able to fit all the batter into the pie crust as it was overfilling, but it still turned out great.
