Custard without the cream? We'll take it. Especially when it's laced with an exotic hint of cardamom, drizzled with maple syrup, and starring fresh, tart berries. This dessert will satisfy without sabotaging your day.
Heat oven to 350 degrees and position rack in lower third. Combine topping ingredients in a bowl.
Combine filling ingredients in another bowl. Pour filling into a 9-inch pie dish and sprinkle with topping.
Place dish on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until bubbling and golden, about 50 minutes. (Tent with foil if becoming too dark.) Let cool slightly and serve topped with Cardamom Custard.
For single-serving crisps, divide filling among six 3/4-cup ramekins and bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
