This is the best custard recipe I have tried! Egg custard is my husband's FAVORITE pie. He liked this even better than his Mother's! I was impressed with the smooth texture of this recipe. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I tried using powdered milk and a bit of butter instead of scalded milk, and I replaced about a third of the sugar with Splenda.

This was a great egg custard. I made a double recipe and used half whole milk and half evaporated milk. I didn't completely double one of the ingredients; sugar, I used 1 1/2 cups and it was still plenty sweet. I omitted the nutmeg and used just a small amount of cinnamon. I also added a tablespoon of Vanilla Extract. I omitted step #11 from past experience I saw no need for it. I changed a few things for our taste but I am absolutely positive that the recipe would be perfect for most anyone just the way it is. ENJOY!!!
