what you'll need

  • 1 pie crust deep-dish store-bought
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 sprinkle nutmeg cinnamon or mace

let's do it

  • Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl with vanilla, sugar and salt then stir in milk.
  • Pour mixture through a strainer into an unbaked pie crust and sprinkle with your choice of spice.
  • Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes then lower the heat to 325 degrees and continue to bake for 50-55 minutes. The edges will be set but the center will still be wiggly. Do not allow filling to bubble.
  • Chill 4 hours or overnight.

One Last Thing

Be sure to use a deep-dish pie plate or you will have too much filling.
