BRISTOL — First Place Cream

Bananas Foster Cream Pie


Ann Andre — Murphy Guest House Bed and Breakfast, Bristol.

Pie Crust (single crust)

6 TBLS very cold unsalted butter

1 ½ C all purpose flour

½ tsp. kosher salt

2 TBLS + 2 tsp C very cold vegetable shortening

3-6 TBLS ice cold water

DIRECTIONS

Dice the butter and return it to the refrigerator while you prepare the flour mixture. Place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix. Add the butter and the shortening. Pulse 8-12 times, until the butter is the size of peas. With the machine running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse the machine until the dough begins to form a ball. Dump on a floured board and roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll the dough on a well floured board into a circle, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough to make sure it doesn’t stick to the board.

Fold the dough in half, place in a pie pan, and unfold it to fit the pan.

(Pre-baking with weights: Thoroughly prick bottom and sides of unbaked pie dough with fork (50 times) to prevent it from blistering or rising. Chill 10-20 minutes. Line pie dough snugly with foil or parchment paper. Fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake at 375°F for 10-15 minutes. Remove foil and weights. Bake 5-12 minutes or until edges and bottom are golden brown. (adjust cooking time according to how golden brown you want your crust.))
