  1. Place each piecrust into an ungreased 9" deep dish pie plate and crimp edges with fingers to form a decorative rim.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Prick the bottom of each piecrust with a fork several times, then pop the crusts into the heated oven for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and sprinkle evenly with nutmeg.
  5. Whisk together eggs,both types of milk,sugar, vanilla, and salt.
  6. Pour into piecrusts and pop into the oven to bake for 7 minutes.
  7. Lower the oven temperature to 325 F and bake another 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center tests clean.
  8. Let cool on wire racks, then chill in fridge completely before serving.

I've been meaning to rate this....absolutely great egg custard!!!! I had no problem with the filling ending up under the crust and it was extra creamy Ithink because of the 5 min cooking of the crust. Very easy. Deeper type pie plates work best as it is pretty full.
