I have been looking for years for a recipe that was as good as the one my Amish grandmother made when I was a child. This one appears to produce a pie just as good as hers. I am diabetic so substituted 1/3 cup of Splenda for the sugar and added a little vanilla extract. It was wonderful and my grandmother would be proud. I have another one in the oven as I write this.

This custard pie was amazing. It was so creamy and perfect. I'm not sure if it is some Amish secret or what but it's the best custard type pie I've made. If you are looking for a simple (non conflicting tastes) dessert this is it. It goes with everything.
