Two Teens And Their Mama: Grandma's Custard Pie

Grandma's Custard Pie


Tomorrow is my one month blogiversary!  It has been an amazing start, and I've already met some wonderful new friends.  I'm looking forward to seeing where this exciting venture takes me.

In honor of my blogiversary and Mother's Day next weekend, I thought I would share the recipe for my Grandma's Custard Pie.  This is my mom's favorite dessert, so I'll probably bake it for her when she comes to visit.  Nobody makes it as good as grandma did, but I'll give it my best shot.  It's actually a very simple recipe, and can be garnished with fresh fruit if you want to add a little extra flavor and color.


Grandma's Custard Pie

Pre Cooked Pie Crust (you can make your own - I buy Marie Callender's)
4 eggs
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp. Sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 cups milk, heated almost to boiling
1 tsp. vanilla
nutmeg

Beat eggs slightly.  Mix in sugar and salt.  Add milk, then vanilla.  Pour into pre cooked pie crust and sprinkle top with nutmeg.  Bake at 425 degrees for 30-35 minutes until just set.  This pie can be served warm or refrigerated.


Have a wonderful spring weekend!

  8. Belated happy blogiversary! That custard pie is definitely the prefect way to celebrate such occasion. Those recipes make us reminiscent of the love our grannies put into making those treats for us when we were younger. They can brighten up anyone's day! I'm sure that custard pie is really delicious.
