“This recipe was originally published in the Charlotte Observer sometime in the 1960s. I recently found it going through some of my Mother's recipe clippings and knew I had to make it again, as much for the memories as the taste of this great southern tradition. I lost my Mother in 2002, but going to the S&W in Asheville on Saturdays for lunch with my parents will always remain a special memory for me. Mother, without fail, had the Egg Custard Pie as it was one of the very few desserts she actually enjoyed.”
