Egg Pie is a classic Filipino dessert or snack. Trythis easy Filipino Egg Pie recipe and enjoy the creamy, delicate yet firm egg custard in buttery, flaky crust that is perfect afternoon snack.

Filipino Egg Pie Recipe - Foxy Folksy (1)I remember back in the days when we used to live next toa bakery, I would wake up to the wonderful smell of Pandesal baking in the oven!

It would be really nice if it was not at 3 o'clock in the morning though and there were times it was difficult to get back to sleep when you feel your stomach growling thinking of those hot pandesals with melting butter on them...hhhaaayy!

Even writing about it now makes me crave for those hot pandesals. Good thing I have a similar recipe, so maybe it's time to make some.

Another thing I miss fromour next-door bakery is their Egg Pie! It is also one of their bestsellers, sometimes you have to order in advance if you want to have a slice because once it hit their stands then it is good as gone. So this means we usually get them fresh out of the oven and for me that is the best time to eat egg pie, while it is hot!Filipino Egg Pie Recipe - Foxy Folksy (2)

I tried a recipe I found online because the picture in it looks so similar to the Egg pie from our neighbor's bakery. The result was ok and it gave me the dark brown top I was looking for but I find it a tad too sweet for my taste and the custard was a bit too dense and firm, which is not bad if that is your thing, one good thing was it was really easy to cut.

But I want the custard to be a bitdelicate or slightly wiggly like gelatin. Here is where my experience from making the Portuguese Egg tarts came to the rescue.

So in the end,I used the same technique but changed the ingredients to make my own Egg Pie and it was perfect (in my humble opinion, backed-up by Armin's, of course!).Filipino Egg Pie Recipe - Foxy Folksy (3)

Ingredients

PIE CRUST

  • 1 ¼ cups flour
  • ¼ block (½ stick/ 2oz./ 57g.) butter - cut into small cubes
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-4 tablespoons ice water

FILLING

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl mix together the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut in butter using the mixer by pulsing until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Add water a tablespoon at a time, pulsing until dough is crumbly but holds together when pressed. Press the dough together to form a ball.

  • Place the pie dough on a floured surface or on a rolling mat and roll it out thinly to a 14-inch round sheet. Gently fold the round dough sheet in half and then in a quarter. Place the dough on a 9-inch pie form with the pointed part exactly at the middle. Unfold the pie dough and gently fit dough into bottom and sides of the plate without tearing it. Using kitchen shears, trim dough to a 1-inch overhang; fold under, and press gently to seal. Crimp edges if desired. Refrigerate 30 minutes to an hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350°F/170°C.

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine and whisk the 3 eggs and the separated egg yolk. Gradually add the condensed milk while whisking. Add the vanilla extract and continue whisking until all ingredients are well combined. Add the evaporated milk and all-purpose cream and mix well with other ingredients.

  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg white using an electric mixer until it forms soft peaks. Fold the beaten egg white into the mixture. (The beaten egg white will give the top of the egg pie a brown color after baking.)

  • Pour the filling on the refrigerated pie crust and bake on the lowest rack for 15 minutes at 350°F/170°C then lower the heat to 325°F/160°C and continue baking for 30-40 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the filling comes out clean.

Notes

NOTE 1: You can skip the addition of cream and just add the same amount of evaporated milk.

NOTE 2: This recipe makes a light, delicate, jiggly egg custard. If you prefer a firmer custard, skip the cream and just use a total of 250ml of evaporated milk.

    Hi! I tried this recipe twice but my pie crust is still raw at the middle. Any tips on how to address this?

    BTW, the recipe itself is delicious I just can't perfect the pie crust. It turns out raw after baking. I followed the baking time and temperature of the recipe

    • Bebs says

      Hi Nadine, I never had this problem with any of my pies. I know that the type of cookware can make the difference. Use metal (aluminium/steel) pans if you have and note that dark ones cook faster than light-colored ones. If using glass or ceramic pan use the lowest rack.

    Hi just to double check, i have done this long time ago a few times but can’t remember what i did to get the consistency i wanted. i don’t want the custard to be very firm. I want it to be semi melt in the mouth type but still set . do i just add more cream than evaporated milk or it’s the otherway around? Thanks!

    My husband loves it. I did not use the heavy cream since I didn’t have it and I like my pie a little firmer. However, it has more liquid consistency so I had to bake it a little longer. The crust is also not too crispy at the bottom. If I will bake the crust first, do I go straight to the 30-40 mins at 325F or do I still bake it for15 mins first at 350F? Thanks for the recipe again!

      Hi Hermie, just bake it at the same temperature and just check it after 30-40 minutes. It should be just a little jiggly, and an inserted toothpick should come out clean, if not then add another 10 minutes or until it is achieved.

    5 stars! Just like in Goldilocks! I used store bought pie crust to make it even easier! I added an additional egg yolk and egg white because my stand mixer needs at least 2 egg whites so it could reach it. Amazing!!! It will be on my recipe book!

      Hi Cherry, bake it at 160°C for 30 minutes or until inserted toothpick or knife comes out clean. You can cover the crust edge with foil so it will not brown too much.

    Thanks Bebs for this. I've been baking this throughout the pandemic and my entire family loves it. I need to bake 3 pies at a time to bring to a potluck reunion. May I ask for tips on how I can do this? Do I just triple the recipe? My specific concern is the dough, if I take your measurements x 3 and make a big dough ball - how do I split it evenly into 3?
    Thank you again!

      Hi Jules, yes you can triple the measurements to make 3 doughs. You can weigh the final dough and divide it into 3.

      I do not know why this crust would rise as it has no leavening agent to it. Did you use self-rising flour?

    Reply

    • Bebs says

      Hi Ladelle, you can try to tent the crust part with foil so it will not burn and then increase the temperature to brown the top. I also find that if you put lesser milk and cream it will make the custard denser but will give you a browner top.

    Also, can you use all heavy cream or all whole milk instead of evaporated milk? What would be the consistency?

    Reply

    • Bebs says

      Adding cream would give it a creamier and more delicate texture than just using purely milk.

      Reply

  24. Kat says

    Hi! Can you do 2 egg whites instead of just one? One egg white might not be enough if Kitchenaid mixer is used and I don’t have a hand mixer. I suppose I could use a wire whisk but that’s a bit of a work.

      Sure you can, Kat. You can also add the additional yolk to the custard.

    Hello. I really want to try your recipe especially after reading the comments but I have a few questions I need to ask to make the punishment for wreaking havoc in the kitchen worth it. So here we go. Is it okay to just use sugar instead of sweetened condensed milk? Do I have to make adjustments on baking time or temperature or something else? And if I use half all purpose flour and half cake flour, will it collapse or turn soggy?

    Reply

    • Bebs says

      Hi Shai, sure you can use sugar instead of condensed milk just add about 3/4 to 1 cup of sugar (adjust as you like) and dissolved it in the milk completely, you can warm it a bit so it dissolves faster. Baking time should be the same but do the toothpick test just the same. Mixing APF and cake flour should also be fine.

    Filipino Egg Pie Recipe - Foxy Folksy (33)
    Hi! I just made this tonight and I skipped the heavy cream because I grew up eating egg pie that are firm, so I wanted to make mine firm too like what I had from my childhood days. And I only used 1 cup of condensed milk and 250ml evaporated milk. And it turned out great, its not too sweet. My only issue is that I feel (taste) like the crust is salty for my taste buds. I will probably make it 1/2 tsp salt the next time I make it.
    Thank you for the recipe! ❤

      That is correct Syra, we are used to the sweeter dough but I like mine to have a bit of salt for contrast! Glad that you like it still and thanks so much for the 5 stars. 😉

    Hi Bebs,
    Thank you for sharing your recipe. I've been using your recipe for a while now. And I'm so happy for the outcome but there are some point that my egg pie shrinks in the middle. I can't figure out where the problem is since i strictly follow the instruction everytime I bake. Please help. Thank you❤

    Reply

    • Bebs says

      Hi Farrah, sometimes you have to adjust the time (or even the temp) because all ovens are not exactly the same (size and all). That is why it is important to check for doneness by inserting a toothpick. Maybe your oven was hotter that caused the filling to puff then deflate. It could also happen if you took the pie out immediately to a much cooler room. Next time try to leave it in the oven after turning it off for at least 5-10 minutes.

      When beating the egg white, use low speed only. Tap the pan several times before baking to release some of the trapped air.

      Hi Jinky, in this case, divide your block of butter (454g) into half, lengthwise. Put the other half away and then cut the other half left into 2. Then again take the half of that and cut into 2. This will give you 2 small pieces that should weigh about 57 grams.

      Hi Zet, you can prebake the crust first without the filling if you want. You can cover the top with aluminum foil and put weight (beans/rice/etc) on it to keep the dough from collapsing or shrinking and bake until lightly brown.

    Hi! After baking, it seems that my pie isn't fully set since the center part is still in a liquid state. When I make this recipe again, is it possible to add another egg to have a firmer custard? I don't want to remove the cream from the recipe though.

    Reply

    • Bebs says

      Hi Danny, just bake it a little longer if it is really too liquid. Remember that custards normally firm up more as it cools down. But sure you can add another egg.
