Grandma's Easy Creamy Old-fashioned Custard Pie Recipe (5 Minutes to Prep)

Creamy (and grandma!) is the name of the game with this easy, old-fashioned custard pie recipe. The filling takes minutes to whisk up and then the oven works its magic. The simple custard filling is flavored with vanilla and a touch of nutmeg. Delicious!

You could fancy this pie recipe up with some shaved chocolate or shredded coconut. For the best results, make sure to bring the eggs and milk to room temperature before baking.
