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.

  1. I made this pie last night and left it in the fridge til just now and omg is it amazing! Followed recipe exactly except didnt have cornmeal so i used quick grits and its perfect will definitely make this one again

  2. A stick of butter? I made this pie according to the recipe and it was a mess. Far too much sugar & far too much butter.

    Decrease the sugar to 3/4 cup and decrease the butter to 3 tblspns. The amount of liquid yielded is enough for a small pie pan. Double the recipe for large pie pans.

    I wonder if any of the commenters actually made the pie?

  3. Try substituting the egg nog at Thanksgiving and Xmas for the milk, and add a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg, makes lovely tarts for a desert table.

  4. Christin, you certainly know your way around desserts and your camera. Oh my goodness these photos belong on the front cover of Southern Living magazine, if they are not already. Just pinned!

  5. I grew up in a family that loved desserts and this was always a favorite as well as the chocolate pie. Brings back memories of family reunions and my mom and granma in the kitchen baking everyone’s favorites.

  6. My husbands grandmother makes an egg custard pie that he loves. I’ve never tried making one before, but now I have the perfect recipe! This looks delicious!
