Recipe from Sweets: Soul Food Desserts and Memories via Joy the Baker
1 c each white and brown sugar
4 T cornstarch
a pinch of salt
1/2 t cinnamon (I used a bit more)
1/4 t ground nutmeg
3 eggs + 1 yolk
2 c evaporated milk (I used whole)
3 T room temp butter
1 T vanilla extract (or rum?)
Thaw out your pie crust and preheat your oven to 350.
Combine the sugars, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Beat in the eggs, then stir in the milk until well combined. Turn on the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until bubbles and thickening. Stir in the butter and the vanilla until fully mixed, then pour into the pie crust. Bake 45 minutes to an hour, mine took closer to an hour. It's done when it looks a little set when you jiggle it. Cool most of the way and then EAT!
