    old fASHION CUSTARD PIE

    My mother made this quite often, but I think she must have had it memorized. Now the
    grandkids want it and I could not find a recipe. Can anyone help me with this?

    Here's my custard recipe ...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Baked Maple Custard
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Pour in bottom ofeach custard dish >>
    1tbsp maple syrup >>
    >>
    Whisk together andpour over maple syrup>>
    2eggs cup sugar or splenda>>
    1-1/4cups milk 1 tsp. vanilla>>
    >>
    Set cups in bakingpan with boiling water to within inch of top of cups. Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes til knifeinserted comes clean. Cool and Chill. At serving run knife around edge of each cupand invert on dessert plate.>>
    >>
    Yield: 4 servings

    Variations:
    *You don't have to use the maple syrup, and can leave it plain.
    *Try a few raspberries, blueberries, etc in the bottom, with or without the maple syrup.
    *I like to eat mine slightly warm and then if there's any leftovers, cold.

    I have an old recipe from a 1966 Better Homes & Garden book. It's a "slipped" custard pie. The crust is baked by itself and the custard by itself. Then the custard is slipped into the crust. No more soggy crust.

    CUSTARD PIE: Blend 4 slightly beaten eggs, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. Gradually stir in 2 1/2 cups milk (scalded). Pour into unbaked 9" pastry shell. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake at 350* for 35-40 minutes or until knife comes out clean. Cool on rack.
    SLIPPED CUSTARD PIE: Make and bake pastry shell first and let cool while making custard. Prepare filling for custard pie. Place buttered pie plate in a shallow baking pan. Pour custard in pie plate. Fill baking pan with cold water(about an inch or so). Bake at 350* for 35-40 minutes or until knife comes out clean.Cool on rack. When custard is cool, carefully run a spatula around edge. Shake plate gently to loosen custard. Hold custard just above far rim of baked pastry shell; gently slip into shell. Chill. It's a little hard to slip, but worth it.

    I don't have the recipe anymore, but you brought back a wonderful memory of when I used to make custard pie for my dear deceased father who loved pie more than anyone else I know. thank you.

    I have a good recipe, it is at home and I am at work. Haven't made it in years. I do love custard and custard pie.

    I'm at work but if I remember correctly, my mother in law's recipe is like this except it calls for 5 eggs, 1 pint of milk, no almond extract and the milk isn't scalded. I just made this last Sunday. By the way - she was the pie baker in a Frankie's Cafeteria for many years so she knew her pies.

    Can you make rice custard with this recipe?
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.
