F I L L I N G 4 large eggs 1 cup granulated sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, plus extra for garnish ¼ teaspoon salt 2 cups half-and-half ¼ cup amber rum ¼ brandy

T O P P I N G 1 cup heavy cream 2 tablespoons powdered sugar 2 tablespoons spiced rum Pinch of grated nutmeg

IMG_6914Preheat the oven to 350F. Pat the crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake it for 10 minutes, then let it cool completely. Leave the oven on.

Make the filling: In a large bowl or stand mixer, whisk together the eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and salt until well combined. Whisk in the half-and-half and liquors until just combined.

Put the pie crust on a baking sheet. Pour the filling into the pie crust and bake for 30-40 minutes, until the filling has just set and is still slightly wobbly in the center. Remove the pie to a wire rack to cool completely, at least 1 hour.

IMG_6912Make the topping: In a stand mixer, with a hand mixer, or by hand with a whisk, whip the cream with the powdered sugar and rum until stiff peaks form. Pile the whipped cream on top of the pie, and garnish it with a bit more grated nutmeg. This pie can be made ahead, without the topping, and refrigerated for up to 1 week, covered in plastic wrap. Add the topping just before serving.
