Old-Fashioned Custard Pie Like Grandma Used to Make

How to make a delicious "old fashioned Custard Pie."

The house is decorated and the kids are upstairs asleep. It's time to sit down and go through all the family recipes that have become part of our holiday traditions. These recipes have been handed down from generation to generation and are part of our connection to the ancestors that enjoyed them in years past.

The holidays bring fun, food and family together. It is a time to renew old acquaintances and reminisce on holidays past. This is also the time for making new memories and strengthening bonds with family and friends. Laughter, love, gifts and good food are all a part of this magical season.

In our family, we pull out all the old recipe's that have been traditional over the generations and we also try out some some new ones. When the table is filled with all our old and new favorites. The smells and tastes bring back all the wonderful memories of holidays past and anticipation of holiday's yet to come.

The house is filled with laughter and joy as we come to the table to partake of each and every delectable delight that is awaiting us. The mood is festive as we talk and laugh and eat way too much. After a fantastic meal we wait to digest the feast we have filled up on, and then it is time for dessert. My desert contribution is  the homemade custard pie. This is a recipe that my mother got from her grandmother. It has been included in every holiday meal that I can remember. One day I will pass this delicious recipe on to my daughter. In the mean time I'm going to share it with you.
