An old-fashioned custard pie recipe from Deep South Dish calls for eggs, sugar, evaporated milk, vanilla, nutmeg and flour. Prepare it using a pre-made pie crust, or use a homemade crust.
To make old-fashioned custard pie, bake one unbaked pie shell in a 400 degree Fahrenheit oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine three large beaten eggs with one 12-ounce can of evaporated milk, 1 cup of granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg. Whisk in 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour until the ingredients are blended.
Preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour the egg mixture into the baked pie shell, and carefully place it into the oven. Bake it for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until a knife inserted into the pie's center comes out clean. Allow the pie to come to room temperature before serving it. Refrigerate any leftovers. If using homemade crust, place any crust in an oven-safe pie pan before baking it. Serve this dish plain, or pair it with fresh fruit or whipped cream. To reheat leftovers, use a microwave for 30 seconds.
