Smooth and Creamy Pies - 17 recipes

Custard or Cream? A custard pie begins with uncooked custard poured into an unbaked or partially baked pie shell, then baked. Cream pie recipes have you cook the custard or pudding filling first, then pour it into a cooled, pre-baked crust of pastry, crushed graham crackers or cookie crumbs, and top with mounds of whipped cream after the filling is set. Both are rich and creamy pies!
