Share it:

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."

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.

Used a bit of vanilla and was careful to beat eggs to some froth. I did cut the sugar by an eighth of a cup, maybe a bit more. Came out deliciously light.

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

Easy to make. Next time I will add vanilla extract.

The sweetness was fine, I feel like it tasted to much like an egg.

This 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.
