This recipe has been passed down from my great grandmother. No pie crust is needed it makes its own as it bakes. Very delicious. I always get tons of compliments on this pie.
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup sugar
- 5 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 tablespoons margarine, softened
- 1 cup sweet milk
- 1 (5 ounce) can evaporated milk
- Preheat oven to 350. Spray pie pan with Pam or other nonstick spray. Beat eggs, sugar and flour well. Add margarine, vanilla and milks, beat. Pour into pan. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until center is almost set. Sprinkle nutmeg or cinnamon on top.
I cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup as the reviewer suggested. I also placed a pyrex 4 cup measuring cup of water under the pie pan on another rack. I sprinkled nutmeg on top of pie before placing in oven. Having steam in the oven seems to help the custard set up.
Great recipe like other reviews I added 5 eggs and reduced the sugar 1/2 cup. Will make this again!
I LOVE the fact that there is no crust!! The pie was quite good, but I would increase the eggs to 5 or 6 and use only 3/4 c. sugar. Was a bit sweeter than I like my egg custard.
