½ tsp cinnamon, then  ½ tsp nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven to 450.  Lightly beat eggs in large bowl.  Gradually stir in apple butter/puree, cream and milk.  Pour into a pie shell or a baking dish.  Bake at 450 10 min, then 400 for 40-50 min until clean knife inserted 2” from edge comes out clean (eggs are set).

*may substitute 1 c unsweetened evaporated milk for whipping cream and milk

It looks and sets the same way as pumpkin pie.  Maple syrup is nice as a topping to the custard. Enjoy!
