Mom often made 3 or 4 different pies for holidays. Everyone had a different favorite and she wanted each of us to have our favorite that day.

Custard was always one of the special ones. Its not too sweet and so creamy rich.

This recipe won a Blue Ribbon at our St. Joseph County Fair back in the day. Mom used goose eggs which were more yellow in color and bigger than chicken eggs. It was her secret ingredient.
