this is an old cajun recipe for a custard based pie. The pie shell is almost like a sugar cookie. The evaporated milk sets it apart from most custard pies on this site. We also just make the custard and use it as filling and frosting for a cake. it takes a lot of stirring to get the custard right, but it's worth it. Once you read the ingredients you will realize this is not for you folks on a diet.
