Bread Pie is a bread pudding in a pie crust. We can already hear some of you exclaiming, “Of course! That’s so brilliant!” But for those who need a little extra persuading, imagine the classic, tender, custard-soaked bread cubes in a creamy, luxurious filling all atop a buttery, flaky pie crust. Mmm, starting to see it now? Yes, Bread Pie is as indulgent and tantalizing as it seems, and apart from some patience while it chills, it doesn’t require too much from you. What a beautiful treat it is, indeed!
