Ingredients

  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  1. Place egg yolks in a large mixing bowl; beat until frothy. Add 1 cup sugar, flour, and butter; beat well. Stir in milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and nutmeg. Pour mixture into pastry shell. Bake at 325° for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
