Custard Pie

Custard pie is a perfect old fashioned dessert. It is easy and frugal, yet very good.

Like regular custard, this custard pie contains normal everyday ingredients. There is nothing fancy in this pie. It is basically a custard, baked in a pie shell.

My family loves this pie. I would enjoy this with nutmeg, but since my husband does not like nutmeg, I use cinnamon. If you like nutmeg, I suggest you use 1 teaspoon of nutmeg in place of the cinnamon.

Have any of you ever made or had custard pie?

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever had custard pie. It sounds simple! I’ll have to give it a try, thanks!

  2. That sounds really simple and very tasty! I’d try a combo of cinnamon and nutmeg, if you recommend that 🙂

  3. Wow, no I’ve never tried it but I can’t believe how easy it sounds! I’m going to try it friday! It’s funny my son hates cinnamon so I’d have to use the nutmeg! Aren’t people strange? Cinnamon is my favorite spice so maybe I’ll make both.

  4. This looks so good! I like to make chess pie, which sounds similar to this!

  6. That sounds very good! Do you think it would work without the pie crust? I’ve never made custard before.

    instead of using regular milk try buttermilk in the place of regular. taste great!

  8. I really like this custard but my husband doesn’t (he thinks it tastes too much like egg). Do you have a recipe for a pumpkin custard? Thanks!

  9. I made this for my mother-in-law because she loves custard pie. It was a total winner. Thanks, Lynn!


  1. […] that I now have a gluten free pie crust just in time for holiday pie. I am thinking pumpkin pie, maybe a custard or lemon pie. I see all kinds of pie coming up. So stay tuned for some pie […]
