  • 3 cups whole milk room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1 unbaked pie crust


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Lightly spray a 9 1/2 in pie pan with nonstick spray.
  • Place unbaked pie crust in pie pan, pressing dough against the sides of the pie pan.
  • Beat together sugar, eggs, nutmeg and vanilla. Add milk and whisk until smooth.
  • Pour mixture into pie shell.
  • Sprinkle the nutmeg lightly on top of the custard.
  • Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until set.


TIP: Using room temperature eggs and milk help with even cooking.
TIP: You’ll be able to tell when it’s done by doing a simple jiggle test.  Try gently shaking the pie pan and if the center of the pie jiggles slightly, it’s done!
TIP: This pie tastes and cuts best when chilled.
