Wisk all ingredients together, pour into a 9 1/2" deep dish pie plate lined with an unbaked pie pastry crust.

Cover the pastry crust edges with a pie shield or foil after being in oven about 30 minutes; so it does not get tooo brown.

*NOTE: I wanted to use sour milk instead so...
I made 'sour milk' by adding 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice (can also use distilled white vinegar) in a 4-cup measuring vessel and adding the whole milk. Just gave it a stir and let set about 15 minutes to thicken and looked like it was begining to curdle.
