Serves 6 

Pastry for 1 9-inch pie (homemade or store bought ready-roll)
1-1/4 cup whole milk
2 eggs
1 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
1-1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

2. Line a pie dish with the pastry. Cover the crust with waxed paper and weight down with pie weights or dried beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool and remove the waxed paper and weights. Cool completely.

3. Place the remaining ingredients in the carafe of a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into a saucepan and cook over medium heat until thick and pudding like, about 3 minutes. Scrape the mixture into the cooled pie crust and smooth the top. Bake for 10 minutes until the filling is set and just jiggly. Cool completely, then refrigerate for several hours.
