NOTES

  • If available use fresh ground nutmeg because it so full of flavor
  • I pour the egg mixture into the pie crust very carefully right there in the oven while the piecrust is on the rack.
  • Do not over-bake. The pie should still be somewhat giggly.
  • This pie tastes and cuts best when chilled.
