This is a wonderful combination of traditional custard pie and the fresh taste of apples. To keep your apples from browning before you put them in the pie, you can put them into a pan of cold water or brush them with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water.

3 medium sized granny Smith apples(any tart firm apple will work as well) 1 3/4 C granulated sugar, divided

4 large eggs

1 1/4 C buttermilk

6 Tbsp butter, melted

3 Tbsp all purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, divided

2 1/2 tsp nutmeg, divided

1 9 inch pie shell, unbaked

preheat oven to 350 F, peel and core apples and cut into small chunks, do not slice. Put apples into a bowl of cold water or brush with lemon juice, and set aside.

Keeping aside one tsp of sugar, lightly beat eggs in a medium bowl with an electric mixer set on low speed and add remaining sugar, melted butter, and flour, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, vanilla extract and 1 3/4 tsp nutmeg and blend well. drain apples well and place into unbaked pie shell.

Pour buttermilk mixture over apples and combine reserves sugar and spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle over apples and bake until apples are tender and custard mixture is set. this will usually take from 50 minutes to one hour. Best when served warm or at room temperature. A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a great addition.
