This recipe came from the best cook in West Virginia—my mother! I just added a little to her ingredients. I’m a widow, and my grown children live in another state. So mostly I make my custard pie for church and club functions. It’s the most different pie of all the ones in my collection.
Editor’s Note: Pastry for 1 double crust is needed only if a braided crust is desired. To prepare braided crust: Trim pastry even with the edge of the pie plate; brush with water. From the top pastry, cut 12 strips, each 1/4 in. thick. Using three strips at a time, braid pastry on edge of crust, attaching ends together. press down gently. Bake as directed on front.
