Old Fashioned Cream Custard Pie is grandma’s delicious recipe, its very easy to make too! With silky smooth custard, sensational flavor and just the perfect texture. You can even save time and just use a store-bought refrigerated pie crust or you can use your favorite homemade crust recipe!
I have been adding so many of my late grandmothers pie recipes this week- please stay tuned for many more before baking season starts- this one here is a family favorite! This is an incredible yet simple pie recipe.
It is just waiting for your choice of toppings! Hubby loves caramel sauce on his but I enjoy mine with just a little whipped cream! Also, if you want to make it richer and really dress it up add an extra yolk 🙂
Its so easy! I just throw everything in the bowl, used a mixer for about 1 minute, poured it in the pie shell and popped it in the oven! Only one big problem…. I can never get more than one slice before it’s all gone! LOL Every person who tastes this pie wants the recipe and says it’s the best they have ever eaten. Even the people who ‘say’ they really didn’t care for custard pie, changed their tunes rather quickly after one bite!
This pie always comes out perfectly! Silky smooth custard! To prevent custard from going under the shell, be sure and poke holes with a fork all over the shell including the sides FIRST to prevent bubbling. That would be for any pie recipe BTW.
I have always loved Custard pie, but my attempts have never quite matched the one’s at the pie-shop…until now that I have my grandmothers recipe thats written on a recipe card from her old recipe box! Adding an extra yoke makes an even more rich and creamy filling! It is the BEST!! I Know you will get a bit nervous about spillover after pouring all of the filling into the crust as it came to the very brim, but nothing will spill over if you follow my instructions above this section 🙂 it is the most beautiful pie!!!
My hubby couldn’t believe that I could make something so good! I don’t know if I should be flattered or offended LOL I choose to be flattered because he didnt even like custard pie before he tasted this one! now he asks me to make it every time baking season starts!
This pie brought back memories of my childhood! I like to post recipes that are easy, so I cheated and used a refrigerated pie crust, feel free to use your favorite pie crust recipe! I will be adding one to the blog soon , in a separate post so stay tuned for that one!
I always cover the pie edges with foil just in case. Also, make sure your pie is cool before placing in fridge.
The custard is just so so delicious – it tastes almost like vanilla creme brulee! 😉
