Old Fashioned Custard Pie

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by jillcomeau

Growing up we had this pie every year at Thanksgiving and Christmas. It's simple but decadent. If you've never had Custard Pie before, it's a little bit like Creme Brulee in a pie crust. This is wonderful served chilled with REAL whipped cream. Enjoy.

I plan to eat one whole tartlet followed by lunch. I'm one that's in full control of myself. Right?!? Made for PAC Spring 2011.
