  • In mixer, lightly whisk 8 egg yolks. Add heavy cream, sugar and vanilla bean seeds. Whisk on medium to incorporate air. Pour into chilled pie crust.

  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about an hour. (If top skin is browning too quickly, use a spoon to skim it off the top and continue to bake.) Pie is finished when center appears to be set, and only jiggles slightly. Remove and cool, then place in refrigerator to cool completely.

Tips

Two 5-ounce bags of Salted Caramel Pretzel Crisps(R) Minis yield about 2 cups crumbs.

Sprinkle sugar on top of custard and torch as an option.
