How To Make Medieval Custard Pie (Daryoles)

Have a sweet slice of this custard pie that brims with the flavor of homemade almond milk, spiced with cinnamon and saffron.

Preparation: 50 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 1 hour 30 minutes



  • 29-inch pie crusts,unbaked
  • ½cupalmonds,blanched
  • cupscold water
  • 1cuphalf and half cream
  • 1pinchsaffron powder
  • 1tspground cinnamon
  • 5eggs
  • ¾cupwhite sugar
  • 1tsprose water


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Press pie crusts into the bottom and up the sides of two 9 inch pie pans. Prick with a fork all over to keep them from bubbling up.

  3. Bake pie crusts for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until set but not browned. Set aside to cool.

  4. Make almond milk by placing almonds in the container of a food processor. Process until finely ground, then add water, and pulse just to blend.

  5. Let the mixture sit for 10 minutes, then strain through a cheesecloth. Measure out 1 cup of almond milk, and mix with half and half. Stir in the saffron and cinnamon, and set aside.

  6. Place the eggs and sugar in a saucepan, and mix until well blended. Place the pan over low heat, and gradually stir in the almond milk mixture and cinnamon.

  7. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture begins to thicken. When the mixture is thick enough to evenly coat the back of a metal spoon, stir in rose water and remove it from heat. Pour into the cooled pie shells.

  8. Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the center is set, but the top is not browned.

  9. Cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until serving.
