Custard Pie--Nothing Fancy

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 40 mins

I was hungry for a good old fashion egg custard pie, did a search on the web and found this posted by Yvonne on All Very good. I used fresh grated nutmeg, but you can also use cinnamon. I whisked while adding the hot milk and also add 10 more minutes to the baking time. I also like my custard pie cold so I put it in the refrigerator about 45 minutes before cutting. Preparation time is for filling only.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine eggs, sugar, nutmeg or cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.
  2. Add scalded milk a little at a time while whisking, so as not to cook the eggs.
  3. When all is blended, pour into the unbaked pie shell.
  4. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.

I've always been afraid to make custard pie, but decided for my FIL's birthday that I would go for it. This was delicious and the family quickly made short work of the pie! Thanks for a great recipe. I will make this time and time again!

I was sure this pie wouldn't set because I have trouble with pies sometimes, but this one sliced perfectly. It might just be my oven, but I had to cook mine about 45 minutes instead of 30, and that was the only adjustment I made. Great pie!
