How to Prepare!

First pre-bake your pie crust according to your pie crust instructions and let it cool.  You can buy one at your local grocer or make your own favorite pie crust.

Once your pie crust has baked and cooled, prepare the vanilla custard.

Vanilla Custard

This custard is made with egg yolks, milk, sugar, salt, butter, flour and vanilla as the main ingredients.

Use a whisk to beat egg yolks in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, salt, and flour. Slowly stir milk into dry mixture. Place over medium-high heat and start cooking, whisking continuously.  Once all combined, briskly whisk in in the beaten eggs slowly and continue whisking continuously until pudding thickens up about 5 minutes. It is very important that you add the eggs in slowly so you don’t curdle the eggs.

Add the butter and vanilla and whisk to combine.

Remove from heat and pour into prepared pie crust.  Place custard pie in fridge to prepare the raspberry pie filling.

Raspberry Pie Filling

In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar, cornstarch, salt and water. Stir in 2 cups of the raspberries. Heat to boiling. Boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in butter. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Stir remaining 2 cups raspberries into cooled raspberry mixture. Spoon on top of custard pie filling and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

It’s a beautiful pie worthy of a few required steps that you can bring together easily with these home-made fillings of raspberry and vanilla.  Change it up with your favorite fruits by replacing the raspberries with cherries, blackberries or blueberries.

Add some fresh whipped cream to give it a lighter fare and add another layer of flavor.  You won’t be able to resist this toothsome temptation.

Whipped Cream, Optional

  • Add fresh whipped topping or store-bought whipped topping if desired. To make whipped topping, you'll need 1 cup of fresh whipping cream + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar + 1 teaspoon vanilla. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, or the cream will become lumpy and butter-like.
