Caramel Custard Pie, an easy dessert made with a shortcut no-roll pie crust and a caramel twist. Old-fashioned family favorite sweet treat recipe!

Caramel Custard Pie is not your ordinary custard pie. It has a caramel twist that adds an oomph to traditional custard pie, and it’s easily become another one of my family’s favorite pie recipes.

I remember my mom making custard and putting it in the oven to cook; much like pecan pie, it seemed to be one of her favorite desserts to make. Making this pie always brings back those memories of Mom in her kitchen cooking up a scrumptious dessert.

The brown sugar mixture I press into my crust gives this pie a great flavor, almost like a graham cracker crust but a different texture altogether.

While most custard pie recipes say to chill for an hour or two (and this one is delicious when it’s been chilled overnight), I enjoy this pie just as much when it’s warm from the oven. Mmmm, mmmm good.

There’s nothing quite like Caramel Custard Pie, warm from the oven. Dreamy creamy egg-based dessert recipe with a brown sugar caramel twist.

TIPS FOR HOW TO MAKE A CARAMEL CUSTARD PIE

  • Then lightly press the brown sugar mixture into your crust, pressing into the bottom and sides. You may have a little bit left over.
  • For the filling, mix together the eggs, vanilla, caramel extract, milk, sugar, and salt. Don’t let the mixture become too frothy; just make sure it’s blended well.
  • Pour the egg mixture into your pie crust.
  • Sprinkle the top of the pie with a pinch of nutmeg.
  • Bake at 350° for about 45 minutes to an hour. You may want to use a pie shield to keep the edges of your pie from burning.
  • Insert a knife or baking tester in the center; if it comes out clean, the pie should be done.
  • Let the pie cool; it may sink just a bit.
  • Store in the refrigerator, and you may even want to chill overnight before serving. Serve alone or with whipped cream and fresh fruit. Enjoy!
