Matcha Custard Pie for St Patrick’s Day

In celebration of St Patrick’s Day, the owners of Four & Twenty Blackbirds bakery in Brooklyn shared the receipt for this delicacy.


  1. Heat the oven to 235F
  2. Whisk ⅔ granulated sugar, 1½ tablespoons flour, ¼ teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  3. Stir in ½ cup of melted unsalted butter, then beat 3 eggs and 1 egg yolk at a time
  4. Beat a couple of minutes more, stir in 2 cups heavy cream and ½ teaspoon vanilla, and strain into a par-baked-10-inch pie shell
  5. Bake about 50 minutes, rotate it 180 degrees after 35 minutes, until the edges are set but the center is still wobbly
  6. Cool it down and adorn the whip cream

Does anyone know how to make gluten-free or bake-free (if possible) custard pie? It would be interesting to try though!
