Last week someone requested a recipe for egg custard in a pie shell,I just found my recipe today but can't remember who requested the recipe. I hope they will find this,I made this for my Grandfather many years ago,he just sat back and closed his eyes and said"this tastes just like my Mother used to make" He had a big smile on his face. I have never forgotten that.
Hope you enjoy!
