Custard Pie and Butter Crust!

4개월 전

I hope you are all safe! Last night my sweet tooth kept whispering to my ear that I had been neglecting her so into the kitchen I went to make this delicious custard pie and buttery crust!

I have rheumatoid arthritis, I have had it since I was 19. Although I am an esthetician and work with my hands all the time I like to find ways to make my life easier such as making the process of rolling out pie dough. You'll see here !

Preheated oven
1 egg (separated)
1 1/4 Cups all purpose flour
1/4 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/4 Tsp sea salt
1 Stick cold unsalted butter (cubed)*
3 Tbsp ice water

  1. Place all dry ingredients in a chilled bowl and using a pastry cutter mix in the cold butter until you have a dry clumpy mixture.
  2. Mix in water using your cutter until small clumps/balls form.
  3. Gather dough together into a ball. Do not knead it!
    This is the part I told you I like to do to make it easier for me!
  4. Place your ball into the middle of a gallon ziplock bag.
  5. Roll out until the dough is thinner and completely flattened inside the closed ziplock bag.
  6. Refrigerate for an hour.
  7. Cut out one side of the bag and press bag down on an 8 inch pie pan.
  8. Carefully peel off bag. Cut off excess dough.
  9. Brush with egg white completely.
  10. Bake for 7 minutes then let cool for 10 minutes.

Now for the custard filling!
Pie crust
4 Eggs
3/4 Cups white sugar
1/4 Tsp salt
1 1/2 Tsp vanilla
1 Cup heavy cream
1 1/2 Cups milk


  1. In a bowl whisk together 3 eggs and your leftover yolk and whatever was left of the whites you used to brush you pie.
  2. Add all your ingredients and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour mixture into pie crust and bake for 40 minutes on your middle oven rack.
  4. Pie is ready when knife inserted in center comes clean.
  5. Cool on wire rack then refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  6. Enjoy!
    Here in So Cal we are waiting for the lockdown order as it seems like a huge possibility. Board games are out, pantries have been stocked for months and although I can admit I am frightened everything is well here in my little homestead.
    We are going to start our summer garden any day now so I am looking forward to that!

Stay safe, wash your hands and love your family extra tonight!

I make a similar recipe but using buttermilk instead of heavy cream for a buttermilk pie. It's like eating a sugar cookie but in pie form. One of my favorites.

We got 3 cases of Coronavirus in nearby counties and people are slowly shutting down everything. I imagine a total lockdown is a possibility if it keeps spreading. It's really scary all the panicking and I'm preparing to take in my elderly mother if a total lockdown has to happen. Stay safe and healthy friend!


That sounds decadently delicious! I pray you are all safe and yes I took my father in with me too! I tell my kids that I wish I was like a mama chicken and could keep them safe tucked under my wing💜 hugs and love your way!
