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.:)
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp unsalted butter , cut into cubes
- ¼ cup cold water
- 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.
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:)
