Ingredients
  

Pie Crust

  • 1 prepared pie crust baked and cooled

Vanilla Custard Layer

  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • teaspoon salt
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Optional: 1 vanilla bean split with seeds removed and reserved

Raspberry Pie Filling

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups fresh raspberries
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Instructions
 

Pie Crust

  • First, prepare pie crust, baked and cooled, set aside.

Vanilla Custard Layer

  • 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.

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.
