DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Scald milk (I use 1 cup half and half mixed with 1-1/2 cups whole milk). Set aside.
  • In large mixing bowl slightly beat eggs, blend in sugar, salt, vanilla and almond extract.
  • Gradually stir in scalded milk. Do not overbeat as this will create an unwanted foam. Pour into prepared pie shell and lightly sprinkle freshly grated nutmeg over the top.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes or until knife inserted in center of pie comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool 30-60 minutes before slicing and serving.
