Easy Crust Custard Pie

(7 Votes)

1 Hr 5 Min

No time to bake a pie from scratch? Today's busy schedules often keep us from doing things we love, like baking homemade treats for the family. Well, today we've got plenty of shortcuts, like ready-to-bake pie shells, to help us.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups applesauce
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 nine-inch frozen ready-to-bake deep-dish pie shell, thawed

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except pie shell; mix well. Pour into pie shell and bake 60 to 70 minutes, or until light golden and center is set.
  3. Allow to cool, then cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.


Make sure when you are grating the lemon peel to only grate the yellow part of the peel and not the bitter white pith.

Get out of you box already. Eggs make a pie custard and this has eggs. Heard of rhubarb custard? This sounds very good. shortcut apple flavored pie.

I will try this. remember the Hi Ho Cracker apple pie?

Don't think I'll try this....custard pie should not have applesauce in it....not a true custard pie then!

plz explain bout the applesauce in custard pie????? makes no sense.

This must be some kind of mistake.. Custard pie is made from milk eggs sugar and vanilla This is an applesauce pie but may be very good

Sounds great and easy.

Sounds good! Cover with fresh berries to serve, great summertime dessert!

You'll score big with this, our ooey-gooey bacon studded baked cheese dip. A splash of beer adds just the right oomph to the four cheeses that make it so good!
