Magic Crust Custard Pie is a delightful treat that effortlessly merges the velvety smoothness of custard with a unique, self-forming crust.

Its simple ingredients and fascinating crust creation process make it an ideal choice for any gathering.

The pie shines when served solo, but can be elevated with a few complementary sides. A spoonful of freshly whipped cream atop the pie brings a luxurious richness. Pairing it with fresh berries, like strawberries or blueberries, enhances its natural sweetness.

And for a cozy afternoon treat, serve it with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
