Serious Eats: Recipes
Most of the pies I've encountered have had a butter, shortening, lard, or cookie crust, but the Belgian Pie consists of a yeast-raised crust and can be filled with any of a number of fillings. Fruit fillings like apple, prune, and raisin are popular as is rice. Known in Dutch as Rijsttaart, the filling is akin to rice pudding.
If you prefer a butter crust, you can substitute one here. Or just forget the crust all together and enjoy the pudding-like filling all on its own.
