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.

    I’ve this pie with this recipe, and tried it with eggs straight from the farm and eggs from the store and everyone loved the one with farm fresh eggs, but everyone love these pies.

  2. Made this pie & it was excellent. So easy, I was excited about the results. My hubby wants another one. He’s hooked.

  3. I made this today. Took it out to cool. It’s texture and taste was that of a pound cake. It was good , but this is not an egg custard. At least mine didn’t turn out like one 😳

    In the introduction it says that this is sometimes called a sugar cream pie. It can’t be, sugar cream pies have no eggs in them. I’m 70 years old and have been baking a long time and I don’t eat eggs so I have researched recipes and have a lot of sugar cream recipes and they have no eggs in them. It is like custard but no eggs.
