Matcha 'Crack' Pie

Posted by on

This 'crack' pie is as dangerous as it sounds. A buttermilk custard laced with a greedy amount of Matcha that anyone who likes Matcha would crave on a regular basis.
It's rough saltier crust compliments that sweet sweet custard that only touches bitterness but sings praises to Camelia S, better know as green tea.

Consider a blind bake if you want a crispier crust! I personally like a thick crust and from this recipe it still made a very crunchy pie crust, which tasted amazing!

I covered my pie with foil after the first 10 minutes, for about 45 minutes then took it off to brown etc. Be careful, I accidentally pulled away 1/4 of the top layer of my pie.. :(
