This Easy Custard Pie Recipe takes all you love about custard and bakes it in a buttery puff pastry. For all those who love the sweet, creamy, delicious treat that is custard, we thought this recipe would be a great way to take your favorite to the next level. Therefore, we created this recipe for a buttery pie crust filled with an egg custard that's been delicately flavored with nutmeg and vanilla. We've even added a tasty and beautiful garnished option with strawberries and Kiwi. Of course, the custard is a perfect stand-alone treat, but with this Easy Custard Pie Recipe, we hope you enjoy custard differently.
