Brown Sugar Pie Recipe

Brown Sugar Pie Recipes

Ingredients :

175g plain flour

pinch of salt

20g caster sugar

90ml cold butter

50ml or more iced water


25g plain flour, sifted

215g soft light brown sugar

2.5ml vanilla essence

250ml single cream

40g butter, cut into tiny pieces

large pinch of grated nutmeg

Method :

Sift the flour, salt and sugar into a bowl. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Sprinkle with the water and mix until the dough holds together. If it is too crumbly, slowly add more water, 15ml at a time. Gather into a ball and flatten. Place in a sealed polythene bag and chill for at least 20 minutes. Roll out the pastry to a 3mm thickness and line a 23cm pie dish or tin. Trim all around, leaving a 1 cm overhang. Fold it under and flute the edge. Chill for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 425F, Gas 7. Line the pastry case with a piece of greaseproof paper that is 5cm larger all around than the diameter of the dish or tin. Fill with dried beans and bake for 8-10 minutes, until the pastry has just set. Remove from the oven and carefully lift out the paper and the beans. Prick the base of the pastry case with a fork. Return to the oven and bake for 5 minutes more. Leave the pastry case to cool slightly before filling. Turn the oven down to 375F, Gas 5.

To make the filling, mix together the flour and sugar in a small bowl using a fork. Spread this mixture in an even layer in the base of the pastry case. Stir the vanilla essence into the cream. Pour the flavored cream over the flour and sugar mixture and gently swirl with a fork. Dot with the butter and sprinkle the nutmeg on top. Cover the edge of the pie with foil strips to prevent over browning. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, until the filling is golden brown and set to the touch. Serve the pie at room temperature.
