Ponche de Creme Custard Pie
Updated: Apr 11, 2020
Ponche de Creme is a sure staple in a Trinbago Christmas. No aTrini Christmas in my book is complete without a bottle of this delicious, milky and boozy drink. Over the years many chefs have twisted, flipped and experimented with this drink creating many a delicious variation. My favorite though Bally's Premium Ponce de Creme. Bally's has quite a few delightful options including a vegetarian (eggless) and even a vegan option (no animal based ingredients) amazing right? Post Christmas blues in full swing I've set out to create a beautiful dessert using my favorite Christmas drink and I've finally hit gold. Here's my secret recipe and I sure hope you enjoy.
1 premade Graham Cracker pie crust (9 inch)
1/2 cup Ballys Strawberry Ponche de Creme (that has been refrigerated for sometime its thicker that way)
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons Puncheon
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Icing sugar (to dust)
Whipped cream and strawberries (to serve, optional)
●Place milk in a small saucepan on low heat and scald for 1 min or until you see bubbles at the edges of the milk. Turn of heat and let cool.
●Whisk eggs, sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl. Gradually whisk in Ponche de Creme and milk adding the alcohol last. Pour into pie crust.
●Bake 25-30 mins until custard is just set. Cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Dust with icing sugar and serve with whipped cream and strawberries, if desired.
