Old Fashioned Custard Pie

"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.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I'm a midwestern girl, born and raised. I married my highschool sweetheart and we've got 3 awesome kiddos. I'm a retailer by trade but love to cook and especially bake. Cake decorating is my hobby. Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday. I love dogs (Proud mama of a pug, a wheaten terrier and a Teddy Bear) and reading, traveling and VW bugs. I love to entertain and cook for friends and family. It thrills me to watch someone eat something I made and totally enjoy it. My perfect Sunday is cooking a big "comfort food" meal while my family watches football.
