1 large egg
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
Egg Custard Filling:
4 large eggs
½ cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups of milk
1 pinch ground nutmeg, or to taste
Step 1: Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.
Step 2: Apply cooking spray on the bottom of a deep-dish pie plate.
Step 3: In a medium mixing bowl, add the egg, sugar, and butter. Beat until well mixed and creamy.
Step 4: Add the flour and knead to form a dough.
Step 5: Place the rolled-out dough into the prepared deep-dish pie plate. Make sure to cover the edges and the bottom.
Step 6: In a separate mixing bowl, add the sugar and eggs. Beat using an electric mixer until well mixed. Add the vanilla extract and beat until well blended.
Step 7: Gently add the cold milk and stir until well blended.
Step 8: Transfer the custard into on top of the pastry base. Sprinkle a generous amount of nutmeg over.
Step 9: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean after inserting in the middle of the Egg Custard.

Step 11: Serve and enjoy!
Remember that custard tastes great when chilled.
