One to go ( uh-oh)

I am bravely making a custard pie with 10 eggs! It's a cholesterol nightmare but I bet it's going to taste excellent.

Guess what though - 10 eggs and a quart of milk is way more than one regular pie and unfortunately I already froze the other pie crusts. Well - I poured the extra in a bowl and I am baking that too - maybe it will turn out kind of creme brulee like - or maybe it will make a big mess? Who knows.

Here's the recipe
Custard Pie

10 eggs, beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 quart scalded milk
1 tablespoon butter

Scald milk and butter. Let cool and then add to egg mixture composed of eggs, sugar, nutmeg and vanilla extract. Pour mixture into pie crust-lined (deep-dish) 9-inch pie plate. Place in a 450 degrees F preheated oven. Bake 20 minutes only. Turn heat completely off. Let pie stand in oven for 1 hour.
