Apple Custard Pie

Apple Custard Pie

2 pie crusts (to make a double crust pie)

6-8 baking apples

1/4 cup of Irish oatmeal

2/3 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar

1 clove

2 eggs

2/3 cup cream

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place one pie crust into pie plate.

Peel, core and chip apples. Mix with 2/3 cup of sugar, oats, and clove. Add to pie crust.

Brush crust edge with cold water. Place second crust on top of pie to form the upper crust. Press edges firmly together. Trim excess crust. Flute edges. Cut a one inch hole in the center of the upper crust. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes or until apples just start to soften. Remove from oven.

For custard mixture, beat one egg and sugar together; then beat in cream and vanilla extract. Carefully, pour custard into hole in crust. Beat second egg and brush generously over entire crust. Return to oven for 30 minutes. Cover with foil if upper crust starts getting too dark.

FYI – I’ve adjusted this recipe significantly since this episode aired… the recipe above reflects those changes.

  1. What do you do with the 1/4 cup of Irish oatmeal? Does it go in uncooked with the apples?
