  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Scald milk in double-boiler or in microwave.
  • In separate bowl, whisk eggs a little, then add sugar and salt and stir.
  • Add scalded milk, stirring constantly. Stir in vanilla and nutmeg and pour into chilled pie shell.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or until all but about an inch in the center is set. Be careful not to overcook.
