Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust (store-bought or homemade)
  • 4 bags Earl Grey tea
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream and Earl Grey tea leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Place the pie crust in a 9-inch pie dish and crimp the edges.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the heavy cream, whole milk, and Earl Grey tea bags over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Remove from heat and let the tea steep for 10 minutes.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugar, salt, egg yolks, and cornstarch until smooth.
  4. Remove the tea bags from the cream mixture and gently squeeze out any excess liquid. Slowly whisk the cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture.
  5. Place the saucepan back on the stove over medium heat and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, until it thickens and coats the back of a spoon, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Pour the custard into the prepared pie crust and smooth the top.
  7. Bake the pie for 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set with a slight jiggle in the center. Allow the pie to cool to room temperature, then chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  8. Before serving, garnish with whipped cream and a sprinkle of Earl Grey tea leaves if desired.
