Custard Pie anyone?

Evan's graduation 2010 036

Is anyone in the mood for some pie?  We definitely have been in the mood for something sweet and creamy, so a custard pie it is!   With its’ simple ingredients that are usually in my pantry, and no crust to make, it whips up very, very quickly.  You probably should just go ahead and make one, or maybe two…or even three!  :)

Creamy Custard Pie

4 eggs, slightly beaten

2 1/2 Tablespoons flour

2 cups milk (I like to use undiluted evaporated milk, but you can use whatever you have/like)

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


nutmeg (mix in about 1/2 a teaspoon, and sprinkle another 1/4 tsp on top before baking)

Mix all ingredients,  pour into a greased pie pan, and sprinkle with the 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.  Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 45 minutes or until pie is set in the middle.   A sharp knife inserted in the center should come out clean.  The pie will likely be “puffed up”, but settle as it cools.

A glass of sweet tea, a piece of pie, and a summer evening on the porch – happy times indeed.
