Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie
  • 1 1/2  cups 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    salt
  • 1/4  cup 
    shortening
  • 1/4  cup 
    butter, cut up
  • 1/4 - 1/3  cup 
    ice water

Directions
1.
Prepare Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie. On a lightly floured surface, use your hands to slightly flatten dough. Roll dough from center to edges into a 12-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate without stretching it. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra pastry even with edge of plate. Crimp edge as desired. Do not prick pastry.
2.
In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and flour. In another small bowl, combine half-and-half and vanilla. Evenly spread brown sugar mixture in the bottom of the pastry-lined pie plate. Pour half-and-half mixture over brown sugar mixture. Evenly distribute butter pieces over top of pie. Lightly sprinkle with nutmeg.
3.
To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake about 30-35 minutes more or until top is lightly browned and pie is bubbly all over (pie will not appear set, but will set when chilled). Cool on a wire rack. Cover and chill within 2 hours. Pie will set in refrigerator. Makes 10 servings.
Pastry for a Single-Crust Pie
1.
In a medium bowl, stir together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening and butter until pieces are pea size. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the ice water over part of the flour mixture; toss gently with a fork. Push moistened dough to side of bowl. Repeat with additional ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time (1/4 to 1/3 cup total), until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Gather mixture into a ball, kneading gently until it holds together.

Tip
  • * To save time, use half of a 15-ounce package (1 crust) rolled refrigerated unbaked piecrust instead of the homemade pastry. Let stand according to package directions before easing into pie plate.
