“This is almost like a vanilla custard pie, but with a less-sweet crust and less-sweet filling, it works as a great brunch dish. A very light sprinkle of grated nutmeg or ground cinnamon over the top is a nice addition. If you sprinkle the top with sugar and brulee it, this could be a wonderful addition to afternoon tea. Adapted from a recipe by Kerry Saretsky at Serious Eats. http://bit.ly/aNsISi”
