#QuarantineCookbook: Egg Pie

One of my favorite merienda items back when I was little was the egg pie.

I just love the creamy custard filling that’s perfectly complemented by a buttery and flaky crust.

To this day, I still find myself craving for it from time to time, especially during my coffee break.

While it is readily available in my neighborhood, whether via delivery apps or by dropping by a mom-and-pop bakery, I figured it was best to make it from scratch at home, especially since I got hold of this recipe which seems to easy to make.

Procedure:

To make the pie crust:

  • Combine flour, salt, sugar and butter in a bowl. Mix until fine crumbs form.
  • Add the water and mix until a dough is formed. Cover it in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Roll out the dough on a flour-dusted board until it is 1/8-inch thick.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly greased 9-inc round pan. Trim the excess dough and press the tines of a fork against the edges to create a design, then set aside.

  • In another bowl, beat the egg white until stiff peaks form, thrn gently fold into the filling mixture.

To bake the pie:

  • Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust.
  • Gently tap the pie pan against your work surface to get rid of air bubbles.
  • Bake the pie in a pre-heated 180-degree C oven for forty-five to fifty minutes pr until the top turns brown.
  • Serve and enjoy!

The baking pie filled our home with the sweet scent of vanilla and custard and the fam could hardly wait for it to be fully cooked so we could all dig in.

We polished off the pan in no time at all!

I’ve made this pie for the fam several times already and it’s a hit every time.

Many of us whose kids have just finished the first quarter of blended distance learning all deserve a pat on the back.

Much has been said about the stress experienced by students and teachers in adjusting to learning outside the classroom. But we parents are adjusting, too, right?

Assisting the kiddos with their online classes while also dealing with the challenges of working from can also be stressful.

So if you and your home pupil are still trudging on, bravo! You two deserve a snack break.

The good news is, you won’t have to leave the house nor spend a lot for your indulgence with the little one. Order some of Goldilocks’ tasty and affordable baked goodies from FoodPanda, and they will be delivered right to your doorstep.

Goldilocks has been around since the 1960s, when sisters Milagros, Clarita and their sister-in-law Doris decided to open a bakeshop in Pasong Tamo, Makati. At the suggestion of another sister, Maria Flor, they named their venture Goldilocks after the fairy tale character, to help kids and their moms remember the store name and since it also denoted luck and prosperity.

Decades later, Goldilocks cakes have become part of Pinoy celebrations, from birthdays, office parties or just anytime people decide to get together over their favorite cakes and pastries.
