- 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts
- 1 cup of whole milk
- 1 cup of heavy cream
- 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup of cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1 egg, beaten
- Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
- Food coloring (red and green)
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Unroll the pie crusts and use a 4-inch round cookie cutter to cut out 12 circles from the dough. Place 6 of the circles onto the prepared baking sheet.
- In a saucepan, combine the milk, heavy cream, sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
- Pour the custard filling onto the 6 dough circles on the baking sheet, leaving a small border around the edges. Be careful not to overfill.
- Brush the edges of the dough with the beaten egg. Place the remaining 6 dough circles on top of the filled ones and use a fork to seal the edges together and create a decorative pattern.
- Brush the tops of the pies with the remaining beaten egg and use a sharp knife to make a few slits to vent the steam.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the pies are golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Allow to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once the pies are completely cooled, mix a small amount of powdered sugar with a few drops of red and green food coloring to create a glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the top of each pie for a festive touch.
- Serve and enjoy!
