Apple Custard Pie

Apple Custard Pie

1 cup sugar
1/4 water
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
5 medium sized baking apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 unbaked (9-inch) pie crust
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whipping cream

Combine sugar, water, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium Dutch oven; stir well. Cook over medium heat, stirring until butter melts. Then add the apples, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes until apples are tender. Drain apples, reserving 1/2 cup of the syrup.
Arrange apples onto pie crust, then pour reserved syrup onto apples. Bake in oven heated to 450F for 5 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and continue baking another 15 minutes. Remove pie from oven.
Now combine egg and flour in a small bowl. Stir until well blended and almost no lumps. Gradually add the whipping cream and then pour over the apples. Put pie back into the oven and bake for another 10 minutes at 375. Cool before slicing.
Yield: one 9-inch pie.
