Let's Get Baking!
Also known as a pâte brisée, this crust is a non-rising pie crust perfect for a sweet pie filling, here’s how it works.
Step 1: Place flour, salt and sugar into a mixer or food processor, cube butter and add half the butter into the mixer. Pulse a few times until mixed. Then, add the rest of the butter until it breaks down into tiny little pieces.
Step 2: Add your ice cold water to the mixer, and pulse, When the dough barely holds together, pour it on to a clean dry surface. Then, do what the french call fraisage - push down the dough mixture to crumble the butter and keep things flakey.
Step 3: Get that dough into your buttered baking pan and pop it into the fridge. A cold dough is happy dough.
Prepping your filling:
Step 1: Grab a saucepan, melt butter, at a low heat. The goal here is not to burn the butter. Slowly add your brown sugar and honey. Whisk well! It should bubble a little and smell like magic.
Step 2: Remove from heat and let cool slightly before adding vinegar, eggs, vanilla, and salt.
Step 3: Mix well to ensure ingredients are just right.
Putting it together:
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, remove your pie crust from the fridge.
Step 2: Weigh down your pie crust (try using dry beans over a layer of parchment paper).
Step 3: Bake your pie crust with weights for 20 minutes.
Step 4: Remove your pie, remove your weights, and add your magical fillings.
Step 5: Top filling with honey coated pecans and bake for 40 minutes.
Now let it cool, enjoy and Instagram us a picture of your sweet nude creation!
