Press this into a pie dish and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. 1 1/2 eggs (use the other half of the egg that contributed to the pastry) 1 1/4 tablespoons flour 1 1/4 tablespoons cornflour 2 1/4 cups milk (this is 1 pint) 1 tsp vanilla flavouring 1 tsp butter Boil the milk. In another bowl/pot (depending on whether you are using a microwave or cooker), beat the egg and sugar. Add the flour and cornflour to the egg/sugar mixture and beat this together. Add the milk and cook till it thickens. (This works well in a microwave oven). Remove from heat and add vanilla and butter. Beat well, and pour into the baked shell. Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg, and cool. (This is best refrigerated.)
