Custard Pie

Makes 1 (9-inch) piePennsylvania Dutch Cooking from AlansKitchen.com

Ingredients:

  • 1/2     recipe Rich Pastry
  • 4        eggs, beaten separately
  • 1/2     cup sugar
  • 2-1/2  cups milk
  • 1        large teaspoon butter
  • 1        teaspoon vanilla
  • 2        Tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  •           Pinch of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 F.

  1. Use half the recipe for Rich Pastry.  Line pie dish and chill crust.  Beat egg yolks lightly, add sugar.  Place milk in saucepan and bring just to a boil.  Add butter. 

  2. Pour milk and butter over egg and sugar mixture.  Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Stir together and cool. Pour mixture into crust and bake quickly, to prevent crust from becoming soggy.  When crust has browned, turn off heat and let pie stand in oven for 30 minutes, to set custard.

  3. Beat egg whites stiffly with pinch of salt and add confectioners' sugar.  Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Spread meringue lightly over the pie.  Brown in 325 F. oven for about 15 minutes, when it should be a light golden color.

Pennsylvania Dutch Facts
The Dutch are generally regarded as one of several Germanic peoples, which explains the corruption of the German word Deutsch to Dutch; therefore, the so-called Pennsylvania Dutch are really Pennsylvania Germans.
