  • 1 Single Pie Crust
  • 4 medium size eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  1. Prepare Single Pie Crust as described, let it rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour, roll it out, place it into a 11-inch quiche form with removable bottom, and freeze it for about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F).
  3. Whisk eggs, sugar, salt, and vanilla*, until sugar is completely dissolved. Add milk and mix to combine.

  4. Take your cooled Single Pie Crust out of the freezer and pour Custard Pie filling into the Crust.
  5. Cover your Custard Pie loosely with a parchment paper over and bake it for about 25 minutes. Then remove parchment paper and bake it additional 15-20 minutes. Your Custard Pie is ready when it has a slight wobble in the middle.
  6. Take it out the oven and let it cool completely and then put it in the fridge and let it rest overnight.
  7. Your Custard Pie will stay fresh in the fridge for up to 3 days.

*First, cut off the straight end of the vanilla bean. Then place the tip of your knife below the curled end and cut the vanilla bean through the middle of the bean lengthwise with a sharp knife. Although you don't need to cut it all the way through, it's ok when you do so. Then open the vanilla bean and scrape out the flavorful seeds with the back of your knife. Just use the seeds.
