Made this a couple of weeks ago. The custard was nice and thick when it finished cooking. For some reason the filling didn't "set" after being refrigerated. It was a very delicious, but very messy, pie. I'm not sure what went wrong.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, combine 1 cup of the milk, 1/4 cup of the sugar, 1/4 cup of the nuts, the salt and the vanilla; scald.
  2. Mix the remaining 1/3 cup milk with 1 whole egg and cornstarch.
  3. Thoroughly stir some of hot mixture into egg mixture (adding a small amount first to even out the temperature helps to prevent the egg from scrambling when added to the rest of the hot mixture); return all to saucepan.
  4. Cook 5 more minutes, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens.
  5. Cool 1 hour.
  6. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form; fold carefully into cooled mixture.
  7. Pour into pie shell; chill.
  8. Before serving, top with sweetened whipped cream and remaining 1/4 cup nuts.
