Coffee Custard Pie
Coffee Custard Pie has a delicious creamy filling that also compliments the cocoa graham cracker crust!
Chocolate and Coffee are what we like to call a dynamic duo. They compliment each other, amplifying the flavor throughout. This Coffee Custard Pie is one of the best examples of this flavor pairing.
This pie came to be by gathering the ingredients we had on hand to quickly make a pie in a rush. It starts with a simple graham cracker crust with some cocoa powder. The only oven time needed is to set the crust prior to pouring in the filling. The filling is all done on the stovetop and is so quick!
The filling magic happens thanks to the Savory Spice Baker’s Brew Spice which has a combination of spices including coffee. We also added in a separate teaspoon of instant coffee to further enhance the coffee flavor throughout the filling. This bitterness of coffee is then sweetened by the addition of the dark brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk. We also make sure to add in just ½ teaspoon kosher salt to balance the sweetness. The end result is a creamy sweet filling fully rounded out by the coffee flavor and a touch of salt.
The rest is simple, once the filling is thickened it gets poured into the cocoa graham cracker crust. All it needs is a couple hours in the fridge to fully set. This Coffee Custard Pie is so easy and quick it’ll be your new go-to impressive dessert!
