failed egg pie

It’s been years I have not eaten an egg pie. I just missed it and I am craving for it badly:( .Egg pie was on my wishlist to make for a long time too so the other day I decided to bake it anyway. Sad to say it was not successful 😦 I don’t know what went wrong but my pie was too watery. I bake it  for an hour or more and chilled for 3 hours but it didn’t firm up 😦 I don’t know. But I suspect my oven temperature is not right maybe. But nevertheless I will still post my failed egg pie. The egg pie turned out delicious.:)

Ingredients:
Crust:
Filling:
  • 1 -12oz. can evaporated milk
  • 3 pcs. eggs
  • 1 pc. egg, white and yolk separated
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp fresh kalamansi or lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar

. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar,baking powder and salt. Mix well. Add butter and mix thoroughly with other ingredients using a pastry mixer.

Gradually add the cold water to the mixture. Continue mixing until all the ingredients are well combined.

Gather and shape the dough into a large ball. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

On a clean flat surface sprinkled with flour, flatten the dough using a rolling pin into about ½centimeter thick and wide enough to cover a 9″ pie pan/dish

Arrange and press the flattened dough on the baking pan or pie dish. Use kitchen shears to trim the dough to about a half-inch overhang. Save the scraps. You can use those to bulk up thin areas of the crust when you’re fluting the edges.

Crimp the edges either with a fork or by pinching around the edge with your fingers. I did the latter.Keep the dough in the refrigerator while making the filling.

For the filling:
1. Heat the evaporated milk in the microwave oven for 1 minute.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine and whisk the 3 eggs and the separated egg yolk.
3. Gradually add the sugar while whisking. Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice, and  continue whisking until all ingredients are well combined.
4. Add the milk and mix well with other ingredients.
5. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg white until it forms soft peaks.
6. Fold the beaten egg white into the mixture. (The beaten egg white will give the top of the egg pie a brown colour after baking.) 
Baking the Pie:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour the filling on the refrigerated pie crust.
2. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees F then lower the heat to 325 degrees F and continue baking for 40 to 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the filling comes out clean.
3. Remove the egg pie from oven and allow to cool down.

I was torn between Pinay In Texas Cooking Corner and Our Awesome Planet  recipe. I don’t know which one to follow so I ended up using  the goldilocks pie crust recipe and pinaycookingcorner for the filling recipe:)
