Yield:
1 9-inch pie

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs, beaten

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 2 ½ cups scalded milk

  • 3 drops yellow food coloring (Optional)

  • 1 (9 inch) frozen pie crust, thawed

  • 1 large egg white, beaten

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).

  2. Mix together eggs, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl; stir well. Blend in scalded milk. Stir in 3 drops yellow food coloring for more color.

  3. Brush the bottom and sides of pie crust with beaten egg white to help prevent a soggy crust. Pour custard mixture into pie crust. Sprinkle with nutmeg.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
