Chef G’s Great- Grandmother’s Cream Pie

INGREDIENTS: • 1 Unbaked Pie Crust • 1 Cup Sugar

• 1/4 Cup Cornstarch • 1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg • 2 Cups Whole Milk • 1/2 Cup Butter • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Serves 6-8

DIRECTIONS: • Preheat oven to 400 Degrees F (200 Degrees C). • Line in the inside of the pie crust with foil and fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice. Bake on a lower oven rack until the edge is light golden brown (15-20 minutes). • Remove the foil and weights and bake until the bottom is golden brown (about 4-6 minutes longer). • Cool on a wire rack. • Seperately, in a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and nutmeg. Stir in the milk until smooth. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and cook, stirring constantly for a couple of minutes (until the filling is thick and bubbly). • Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla. • Transfer the filling to the crust, sprinkle with additional nutmeg (or cinnamon) and place back in oven bake until golden brown on top (about 20 minutes). • Cool on a wire rack and then refrigerate until chilled (1-2 hours or overnight).
