Family Recipe Friday – Blender Custard Pie

I recently renewed my subscription to a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm. Besides a weekly delivery of fresh, organic veggies and the occasional fruit, I decided to add eggs to my subscription.

I’m going to have to cancel the eggs.

When I placed the order, there were three of us living here and all of us ate eggs. Then my daughter started eating vegan, making only two of us. Now she’s at college, so vegan or not, there would still be only two of us. And the two of us just don’t eat a dozen eggs in a week. I keep forgetting to cancel the eggs a week prior to delivery as required. Oh well.

I’ve been thinking I’ll do a lot of baking and fill up the freezer. Hasn’t happened yet – but there is always hope.

Today I was thinking about all of those eggs that should not go to waste and decided to make a custard dessert that my mom frequently made. I’m not sure where she got the recipe. I’ve made it many times myself. One reason we like it so much is because it is SO easy – and it tastes good.

Blender Custard Pie

Butter and flour pie pan.

Put in blender:
4 eggs
5 or 6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup coconut
1 teaspoon butter flavoring
1 teaspoon coconut flavoring

Blend and pour into pie pan. Bake 1  hour (sometimes 50 minutes is enough) at 350 degrees.

4 eggs down! Dozens to go!

    Kim: I make this a lot of Sundays for after church. I have to google because we can’t find lots of moms recipes anymore . I don’t like crust so it’s one if my favs!

    Karla: I could be wrong but for some reason I think this recipe came from Frances.

    Frances: That does sound like the recipe I use. I’ve had it probably 40 years, though I don ‘t remember ever discussing it with your mother. However, we have traded many recipes over the years. Truth is, I haven’t made it for some time.. Your mention of it has piqued my appetite for Blender Custard Pie. Bill reminded that I made it when we lived near Coldwater, KS. We had chickens at the time and lots of eggs.

    Kathy: We really enjoyed it this week! If you gave mom the recipe, we thank you.
