1 cup unsalted butter

¾ cup white sugar

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 10: Remove from the oven and let it sit on a wire rack to cool for at least 1 hour at room temperature.

Step 11: Serve and enjoy!


Remember that custard tastes great when chilled.
