A pie is a type of pastry that typically consists of a filling, such as fruit, custard, or sweetened whipped cream.
Making a pie from scratch is easy, and most recipes are relatively simple to follow. This blog post will teach you how to make the best Beau Jo’s Longmont. From the recipe to the process and tips for making your own pie crust, read on for some helpful hints about your next pie project.
The Mountain Pie Recipe
This pie can be made with two types of crust: a sweet, sugar-based crust and a savory, salty crust.
The sweet crust recipe is provided below.
The savory crust recipe is as follows:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper or ground red pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon cold water
Making the Pie Crust
One of the most important steps in making a pie crust is to use cold butter. You can make your own pie crust by combining butter, flour, salt, and ice water in a bowl and kneading it until it forms into a ball. Add an egg if you like and then knead the dough until it’s smooth and elastic. Wrap your dough in plastic wrap or place it in a bowl with a towel over top and refrigerate it for at least an hour before rolling out.
You’ll also need to have some salt sprinkled on your work surface when you roll out the dough so that the dough doesn’t stick. If your kitchen is particularly warm, you may want to chill the dough again for 10 minutes before rolling out to prevent it from cracking.
Filling Your Pie
The filling of your pie is as important as the crust. When you are thinking about what kind of filling to use, it’s best to think about what flavors would complement each other. For example, if you’re making a sweet pie that includes cherries or apples, choose a sweeter filling for the bottom layer such as a custard or whipped cream.
If you want to make a savory pie that includes bacon and cheese, go with something like a mushroom filling. If you’re looking for something hearty and comforting, go with beef stew or even leftover chili. Find different flavor combinations that work for you and your guests and then fill accordingly.
Once you have your pie crust, you need to add some finishing touches. For this pie, we recommend adding a layer of melted chocolate over the top and adding a sprinkle of sea salt to the dough before baking. This will make your pie extra special and provide a nice crunch when it is baked.
After making the pies with your recipe, let them cool completely before storing them in the refrigerator or freezer.
Mix all-purpose flour, sugar, sea salt, and butter together until well combined. Add cold water as needed until dough seems moist enough to roll out without sticking to anything or tearing. Fill dough into an oiled 9-inch pie plate (or other pan) and bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let cool completely before filling with fruit, custard, or whipped cream.
