  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp butter
  • 1/4 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • 3 to 5 tbsp ice water

  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  2. Add the shortening, mix it until the mixture is evenly crumbly.
  3. Add the butter, working it in until it’s unevenly crumbly.
  4. Sprinkle the cider vinegar and ice water over the dough. 
  5. Flatten the dough into a disk and wrap it in plastic wrap then refrigerate for 30 minutes. While you put the dough into the refrigerator, start to preheat the oven to 375°F with a rack set in the middle.
  6. Bake the crust for 35 minutes until it’s golden brown all over. If the edges of the crust start to become too brown, cover them with a pie shield then remove the crust from the oven and cool completely while you make the filling.


  1. Put milk, cream, and salt into a saucepan and heat until small bubbles form around the edges, and steam starts to wisp from the surface.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar. Pour 1/4 of the hot milk/cream over the egg mixture, stirring well. Pour the egg mixture into the remaining hot milk/cream, stirring well. Pour the custard through a sieve, to strain out any possible bits of cooked egg. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Pour the hot filling into the baked, cooled crust. Sprinkle the nutmeg evenly over the top. Cover the edges of the pie with a pie shield or strips of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning.
  4. Place the pie onto your oven’s middle rack and bake it for 35 to 40 minutes, or until the custard is set at the edges but still a bit wobbly in the center. The temperature of the pie at the center should be between 170°F and 180°F.
