This is my first attempt at a custard pie.
Granny made them all the time...From her hand written recipe I tweaked it, with less sugar and added lemon juice for a tart taste. Hers was always way to sweet for me.
I baked this on 7/2/12..today 7/4/12 it dissappeared!
Just went poof!
right before my own eyes!
and I live alone!!...LOL

How to Make LEMON CUSTARD PIE

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 375.
    Prepare 9 inch pie pan with crust.
    I prick the crust all over with a fork, bottom and sides.
    Bake crust for five minutes.
    Remove...set aside.
  2. In a bowl mix together sugars,& salt.
    Scald milk, remove from stove. Beat together corn starch, lemon juice,and beaten eggs .
    Beat well in to the hot milk.
    I cooked all for a couple minutes on the stove...stirring all the time., to start the setting process.
    ****Optional...you can add a couple drops of yellow food coloring..to your liking. Only for color.
    MIX in well....
  3. Pour into the crust..
    Sprinkle top with nutmeg.
    Place on center rack.
    I put a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack under the pie...incase of drips!
    Bake for abour 50-60 minutes...
    When half way baked..carefully cover edges with aluminum foil.....so they do not get to brown...like mine did!!
    Test with a knife.
    edge of pie will thicken first...center will be almost set.
    Remove to a rack to cool.
    Refrigerate till serving time.
