Brown Butter Custard Pie

When old friends are coming to visit us here at the cottage we will often times ask them what special recipe they would like to have. My friend Molly recently asked for her favorite, a Brown Butter Custard Pie. I was so happy to make it for her it is a very simple pie with a great custard flavor. This is a very old recipe that has been handed down to me. It is very creamy on the inside with very warm flavors. I will often times garnish it with a little fruit that is in season.
