Old Fashioned Custard Pie

by 247tasty

Custard Pie is a classic dessert that most Moms served. Whenever I eat it, I can’t help but reminisce the times that my Mom made this; from a simple dinner dessert to a large gathering, this old fashioned pie was often requested. So, no wonder why it became my family’s tradition to serve a custard pie during gatherings. This also is a great gift to give to your friends or loved ones. Let them know that you’re the one who made it so they will feel important and loved. It is a simple dessert that is quick and pretty easy to make. But will always have a special place in our hearts. We grew up to this traditional treat and every bite brings us back to the days when our Moms are in the chicken preparing the perfect custard pie.

Now that I have kids of my own, I will make sure to continue the tradition. And I’m very pleased because I can see how much my kids love custard pie and that they know it’s history (place in our family). You can serve it plain or with some fresh berries and whipped cream.


1 unbaked pie shell (I use Marie Callendar’s deep dish)
3 large eggs
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
2-2/3 cups of milk
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract

How to make Old Fashioned Custard Pie

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 350 degrees F.

Step 2: In a bowl, slightly beat the eggs. Add the sugar, salt, nutmeg, milk, and vanilla extract. Mix well and pour the mixture into the unbaked pie shell. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and let it cool.

Step 3: Sprinkle the top of the pie with fresh ground nutmeg before serving. Enjoy!
