Egg pie

My grandmother cooked a delicious pie that she called an "egg pie". It was mostly sugar and egg yolks. Has anyone heard of it and if so, what is the recipe.

I think it would be a classic custard pie. Do a search for that on any food site and you'll find recipes. Another possibility, if it was VERY sweet, would be the southern chess pie--also just sugar and eggs. Custard pie will have some milk or cream.

You won't believe this, but a friend of mine from Texas just sent me his wife's recipe for Egg Pie. I haven't tried it yet, but this lady is one heck of a good cook.

Vivi’s crustless Egg Pie

3 tbs flour
3tbs oil
3 eggs
1 can evaporated milk
1 cup sugar or splenda equivalent
1 tsp vanilla
˝ tsp cinnamon

Grease and flour a pie pan.
Mix ingredients together until smooth then pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until set and browned.

If you want a pie with a crust, Google for Egg Custard Pie.
It's been years since I made one, but I think you have to start it of on high heat, then turn it down, like you would a pumpkin pie, so the crust doesn't get soggy. I'm thinking 400 for 15 minutes, then down to 325-250.

I think this must be it. It was very very sweet and she did not put milk. It was a very thin pie. After cooking it, she always kept it cool in the refridgerator.
