Egg Nog Pie

This is a big family favorite in my family I grew up in. It's not particularly spectacular, but we all liked it. Maybe it was because our Mom put so much rum in it.

1 pre-baked pie shell

1-2 teaspoons knox gelatin, soaked in 1 tablespoon cold water
1 cup milk, scalded in the microwave
2 tablespoons cornflour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 egg yolks, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 2 to 3 tablespoons rum
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup heavy cream, whipped

Mix the sugar and cornflour and salt together and put into a saucepan. Stir in the scalded milk and cook over medium heat until thick. A a big to the hot liquid to the egg yolks, then add the egg yolks to the hot liquid and bring to a boil. remove from the heat and add the flavoring, butter, and gelatin. Cool.

When nice and cool, whip the cream and fold in the egg mixture. Pour into the pie shell and sprinkle with nutmeg.
