Easy Pie Recipe: Vanilla Poppy Seed Pie

Never mind that it was 95 degrees here yesterday, it’s still fall! And fall marks the beginning of the holiday season which means I get to start trying out all of the recipes I’ve been saving throughout the year to serve over the holidays! I have a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for months…it’s an easy pie recipe for Vanilla Poppy Seed Pie. A friend of mine sent me the recipe back in July and have been waiting for months to make it.

Now I could’ve made it during the summer since it’s a cream pie, but turning on the oven in the middle of the summer to bake a pie crust doesn’t sound like fun. Not only that, but Silk hit me up and challenged me to try Silk Soymilk in a recipe that would normally call for regular milk. I thought what the heck?

This easy pie recipe was SO GOOD that I couldn’t wait to share the recipe with you!

This easy pie recipe for vanilla poppy seed pie is quick to make and DELICIOUS! It's a perfect cream pie for any time of the year.

  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups Silk Organic Vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds


  1. Bake the pie crust as directed on the package. Let cool completely.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the sugar, egg yolks, corn starch and salt. Set aside.
  3. Heat the Silk Organic Vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Do not let it boil.
  4. Slowly whisk half of the Silk Organic Vanilla into the egg mixture. Pour this back into the saucepan and cook while whisking about 3-4 minutes, until the mixture is thick like a pudding. Remove from heat. Whisk in the butter and vanilla.
  5. Pour the filling through a mesh sieve into a large bowl. Let cool for about 30 minutes, while stirring frequently so that the mixture cools evenly.
  6. In a small bowl, beat the whipping cream with a mixer on low speed until peaks form, about 4 minutes. Fold the whipping cream and poppy seeds into the cooled mixture.
  7. Spread the mixture into the pie crust, smoothing over the top. Refrigerate at least 3-4 hours until set.

  1. Do you think Almond Milk would also work?
