Directions:
Preheat oven to 400F. Mix together 3 eggs, plus yolk from separated egg, sugar, salt and vanilla. Stir well. Temper the eggs with a small amount of the scalded milk. Blend in the remaining milk. For more yellow color add food coloring. Line pie pan with pastry and brush inside of crust with the egg white to help prevent a soggy crust. (You may want to pre-bake the crust just a touch) Pour custard mixture into pie crust. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on rack at room temperature. Once completed cool keep in refrigerator until ready to serve.
