For the love of PIE this recipe is SO GOOD! We didn’t even realize how much we loved egg custard pie until we altered and made this recipe! It’s simple to make, melts in your mouth and taste like butter!

It literally taste like the most delicious buttercream, custard flavored pie with spices, lightly sweetened and it’s delicious served warm or cold. This recipe is a must try, as you’ll be pleasantly surprised by how yummy it is!

The top of the pie has a crispy buttery layer, which is divine and once you  bite into the mouth watering custard, you’ll be hooked! We served it with shredded coconut and sliced almonds.

We added maple syrup to this egg custard pie, which gives it even more flavor depth and makes it the perfect brunch dessert. This recipe also uses buttermilk, nutmeg and cinnamon, so good!

For the crust, you can use a store bought crust or you can make your own. We love this easy recipe for buttery flaky crust. It always turns out nicely.

How to Make Egg Custard Pie

Pies can be intimidating to make, but this one is really easy. Whether you choose to use a store bought crust or make your own, the filling in this pie is so simple!

Add all of the ingredients to a mixing bowl, beat on high until combined, and then pour into the prepared pie crust.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes and then let it cool to room temperature.

The best part about this pie is that you can serve it warm or cold! It tastes just as good cold the next day. It can be refrigerated for a few days and enjoyed it. Although, we highly doubt there will be any left after the first day!

The pie can look very plain, so to add some color and charm,  we sifted powdered sugar mixed with cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon and then added shredded coconut and sliced almonds to one side.

Also, if you want to add a little color, you can use dried tea flowers. You can also alter the toppings depending on the season or holiday.
