Project Pie: Week 3-Custard Pies

Chapter 3 is custard pies…examples would be pumpkin, pecan and my choice Butterscotch Custard!2014-07-27 10.55.38-1

I Tried to tackle their crust again…this time following the directions, like Adam did. And well it still didn’t turn out as nice as his.

I did get to use my new pastry mat; something I’ve wanted for a long time. And we ordered a pastry cutter so that should be her in time for next weeks pie.

Anyway… I was supposed to Flute it high…and that didn’t turn out so pretty. But it was better than the first weeks crust.2014-07-28 18.55.46

Then you mix the 3 ingredients and pour it in the shell. Easy peasy.

I baked it for 25 min with the crust covered then 25 with out it covered.

When the timer went off it still looked liquid in the center so I cooked it another 8 min.

After it finally cooled Adam and I were able to dig in for a late night pie treat. Oh and I whipped up some crème by hand.2014-07-28 20.01.00-1

The pie was still slightly warm and we both gobbled it up. Adam said it was better than the blueberry pie. I thought it was very good, but it wasn’t too butterscotchy, more of a custard flavor. Maybe I should have added some butter rum schnapps Winking smile. 2014-07-28 21.07.22

The next morning Adam and Charlie split a piece for breakfast (and I took one to work) Once it was chilled it had a better consistency and tasted sweeter and less eggy than it did warm. So I would recommend letting it fully chill.

Next week: Refrigerator Pies and Adam’s choice. I’m hoping he goes raspberry.
