Simple yet elegant, this layered apple custard pie offers a tasty and creamy twist on the traditional.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup thinly sliced, peeled apples
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 (9-inch) unbaked pie crust
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups milk, heated until very warm
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place apple slices in a medium bowl. Combine 1 tablespoon sugar, the cinnamon, and nutmeg and toss mixture with the apples. Arrange evenly in bottom of crust.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, 1/4 cup sugar, vanilla, and salt. Beat in milk. Pour mixture over apples.
  3. Carefully place pie on rack in center of oven. Bake about 30 minutes, or until knife inserted midway between center and edge of pie comes out clean.
  4. Cool completely on wire rack. Refrigerate, loosely covered, until firm, several hours or overnight.
Notes
  • For easier slicing, use a thin-bladed knife. Wipe knife with clean damp towel, or rinse knife under warm water, after each cut.
     
  • Refrigerate any leftover pie promptly.

I made this pie for Thanksgiving using Granny Smith apples.It turned out horrible. It was sour and did not have enough sugar. The custard was tasteless. The bottom crust did not cook, even though I cooked it a little longer. The apples did not cook and were rubbery. The pie might have been better with different apples. I do not recommend this recipe.
