“Excellent Egg Custard Pie recipe that I've worked at forever to duplicate a popular restaurant's pie! I finally got it!” - by STEPHIKIN
Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C.)
- In a large bowl, combine eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla. Mix just enough to incorporate all the ingredients. Set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine milk and butter. Use a wire whisk and stir constantly until the milk begins to rise in the saucepan at a rapid boil - 5 to 8 minutes. NEVER stop stirring, or the milk will burn. Pour the hot mixture into the egg mixture, stirring as you pour.
- Line a 9 inch pan with dough. Pour custard mixture into crust. Protect the edges of crust with a ring of aluminum foil.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Filling will appear slightly jiggly. Allow to cool.

Next time I might try adding a little almond extract to see how that turns out."
"I whipped this up last night as a snack before bed. I used coconut milk and left out the butter and salt. I poured this into a greased pie plate (no crust) and baked it at 350 for about an hour. I ..." See morestuck it in the freezer for a few minutes afterwards until it was cool enough to eat. It turned out really good and was quick enough that I'd make it again."
