- 4 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups hot milk
- 1 unbaked deep 9-inch pastry shell
Combine eggs, sugar, salt, and milk. Pour into unbaked pastry shell. Sprinkle nutmeg over top.
Bake in a moderate oven (375F) about 50 minutes. To test for doneness, insert tip of silver knife
into custard halfway between center and edge.
If pie is done, the knife will make a clean cut and
no custard will adhere. Cool before serving. Keep unserved portion in refrigerator.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings.
