My dad favored custard pies. They are also a favorite of mine. I also love the flavoring of almond. I decided to combine these two flavors for a different touch to a regular custard pie. This is a very easy pie to prepare. Hope you enjoy it!
Cream softened butter and sugar on medium speed of mixer for 2 minutes. Add salt, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg, almond extract, and eggs. Beat on high 2 minutes; add milk; blend well.
Pour into unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle remaining nutmeg over pie. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 45 minutes, or until knife inserted in middle comes out clean. Cover pie crust with pie rim or foil to avoid over-browning if necessary. Remove from oven and cool.
Drizzle warmed caramel sauce over pie; sprinkle with almonds (you can use toasted sliced almonds if you prefer). Store in refrigerator until well chilled. Serve.
