Before there were Hundred Gram cookies and leveled-up dessert offerings, there’s the humble egg pie from neighborhood bakeries.

One famous bakeshop that has branches all over the country sells its version of this pie. Back in the day, a slice of egg pie would only cost less than 10 Pesos.

It has come a long way since. But what if there are times when you can’t go out and you’re craving for a sweet and warm egg dessert?

This is the time you can take out your baking supplies. The Egg Pie Recipe is an easy one.

Filipino Egg Pie History

A little bit of history. An egg pie is truly a Filipino dessert. It’s almost the same as Egg Custard but in a pie version.

It’s very dense, so it’s always a good thing to accompany it with a warm drink like coffee or hot choco. You can also make this Egg Pie Recipe in any size you want.

There are mini-size egg pies but this one is the regular and rounded shape which can feed 6 or more people. Pinoys still love this dessert despite having many choices nowadays.

It’s still considered one of the popular local sweet delicacies. It’s also an easy one since you’ll only need ingredients that you may already have in your pantry.

You’ll need all-purpose flour, butter, salt, white sugar, and water for the crust of the egg pie. The filling calls for evaporated milk, egg yolks, eggs, vanilla flavoring, and another additional white sugar.

Egg Pie Recipe Preparation Tips

You’ll need an oven to bake the Egg Pie in. The common temperature to use is 180 degrees Celsius. But please keep in mind that not all ovens are the same.

An electric oven cooking time may be different from wood or gas-fired. That said, it’s important to watch closely your egg pie in the oven when baking it for the first time.

You’ll know your pie is ready when to top is brown. That will take between 30 to 40 minutes. You can blind bake your crust first if you want it crunchier.

Light piercing on the base of the dough allows air to flow. Pierce the dough in random spots using a fork. You can try putting a parchment or baking paper over the dough if blind baking.

Add uncooked rice, pie weights, or even dried beans to prevent air bubbles from forming when blind baking.

Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 12 minutes or up to when you can see it’s golden brown. Let cool for 3 to 5 minutes after cooling the oven.
