Egg Pie Recipe


INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Cut butter into small cubes and mix with flour until consistency of bread crumbs
  2. Add salt.
  3. Add water one tablespoon at a time until mixture is dough (it will be a little sticky).
  4. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge or freezer.
  5. Roll out dough about ¼-1/8 inch thick in a circle shape.
  6. Place pie pan on dough, then flip upside down holding the dough against the pie pan.
  7. Push dough up against sides of pie pan.
  8. Cut off excess around the edges.
  9. Make design around pie edges (I prefer the basic fluted edge).
  10. Poke holes with a fork around the edges and on the bottom to reduce air pockets while baking.
  11. For a crunchy crust, I pre-bake the crust. Set oven to 400 degrees.
  12. Put down wax paper or parchment paper and add some rice or pie weights (so the dough doesn’t bubble up while cooking).
  13. Cook until golden brown (about 12-15 minutes).
  14. For the filling, scald milk over a stove or in a microwave (heat for about 2 minutes).
  15. In a large bowl, add two eggs.
  16. Separate the remaining two eggs from the yolk. Add the yolks with the other eggs while collecting the two egg whites in a separate bowl.
  17. In the large bowl (with eggs and yolks) add in the sugar while mixing.
  18. Pour in scalded milk and mix.
  19. Beat the two egg whites with an electric mixer until eggs are stiff.
  20. With a spatula, fold egg whites into the large bowl with other ingredients.
  21. Pour filling into pie crust and put in oven for 15 minutes on 350 degrees.
  22. Lower oven heat to 325 and cook for another 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.
  23. Remove from oven and let the pie cool before eating.
