A sweet and creamy custard makes this simple Old-Fashioned Egg Custard Pie a delight to eat. This is a pie that is satisfying both during the cold weather months and the warm months and it will always be a hit. Just a few basic ingredients that you are sure to have on hand are all that is needed for this easy homemade pie.
Old-Fashioned Egg Custard Pie can be eaten either warm or cold. I prefer cold. Let it cool completely before slicing or the filling will be runny. If you want to eat it warm, heat it briefly by the slice in the microwave.
The custard filling only takes a few minutes and one bowl to mix together. It is made from eggs, butter, milk, sugar, a little flour for thickening and cornmeal for texture, and a teaspoon of vanilla for flavor.
You can use either a store bought refrigerated pie crust or a homemade pie crust.
