Top-ranked recipe named "Ma's Egg Custard Pie"
This recipe has been handed down three generations from my husband's grandmother.
"This was the easiest pie I have ever made, and one of the best. It reminded me of one my mother used to make when I was a kid. MY husband liked it so much he wanted me to make another as soon as we finished the first. He said he could eat the whole pie by himself."- Erlmac
Unroll pie shell and place in a pie dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Mix the eggs, sugar, salt, and milk in a mixing bowl until well mixed. Pour into pie shell and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean and you have a firm custard type filling.

Megmeg54 3 years agoA little to sweet, glad I added a half cup buttermilk and a little vanilla. Used 1 1/2 cups regular milk. Lovely texture.

Frentelimani 3 years agoThis pie came out pretty badly. It had to bake for an hour and 30 minutes, and even then it wasn't solid in the middle. My patience gave and I brought it put. This recipe makes it extremely sweet but the nutmeg gives it a good rich flavor. I definitely recommend less sugar and not too much nutmeg, maybe 1/3 teaspoon instead.
