Warm Apple Buttermilk Custard Pie Recipe
The key to
both a flaky piecrust and crisp streusel topping is to keep them as cold as
possible before putting them into the oven.
1 - ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 T sugar
½ tsp salt
4 T butter ice cold cut into small pieces
3 T shortening ice cold cut into small pieces
4-5 T ice water
flour, sugar and salt in food processor. Add butter and shortening. Pulse about
10 times to blend. Flour and fat should be shape of peas. Add ice water and
pulse briefly to combine. Pour all into plastic zip lock bag and knead until
well combined. Refrigerate for at least two hours.
1/3 cup all
cup packed brown sugar
tsp ground cinnamon
T chilled butter, cut into small pieces
cups sliced peeled Granny Smith apples (about 2 pounds)
cup granulated sugar divided
tsp ground cinnamon
T all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups
tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 325º.
To prepare crust: roll dough into a 14-inch circle; fit into a
9-inch deep dish pie plate. Fold edges under and flute. Place pie plate in
refrigerator for 45 minutes and then in freezer until ready to use (at least 25
minutes). (Can be prepared ahead of time.)
To prepare streusel: lightly spoon 1/3 cup flour into a dry
measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, and 1/2
teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2
knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Place streusel in refrigerator.
To prepare the filling: heat a large nonstick skillet coated with
cooking spray over medium heat. Add sliced apple, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; cook 10 minutes or until the apple is tender, stirring
mixture occasionally. Spoon the apple mixture into prepared crust.
Combine remaining 3/4 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, salt, and eggs,
stirring with a whisk. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla. Pour over apple mixture.
Bake at 325º for 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300º (do not remove pie
from oven); sprinkle streusel over pie. Bake at 300º for 40 minutes or until
set. Let stand 1 hour before serving.
