1 (9-inch) UN-baked pie crust
3 eggs (beaten)
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 additional egg white (use to brush pie crust with)
2 and 1/2 cups scaled milk (cool slightly)
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg *optional
* optional help: scald milk until you starts to see bubbles around the edge of pot.
Brush bottom and sides of a 9 inch pie crust with egg white to prevent pie crust from being soggy. Set aside.
Mix together eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla and mix well. Slowly add scalded milk a little at a time, mixing well with a wire wisk.
Pour custard into pie crust, sprinkle with nutmeg and bake at 400F for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
*If pie crust edges start to brown too much, cover with foil or pie crust cover.
Cool on wire rack.
