Brown Butter Pie Crust

Brown Butter Pie Crust

Brown Butter Pie Crust is the ultimate pastry to elevate any pie flavor. It’s nutty, sweet, luxuriously rich, buttery, and will become your go-to pie crust.

I recently discovered the gloriousness of brown butter pie crust when I decided to make an apple slab pie using this crust. It’s so rich, crisp, and flaky. I found myself reaching for pieces of crust instead of the filling.

Making pie crust is often intimidating to bakers. Especially when you are not familiar with the process. I have a full blog post on how to make homemade pie crust. I highly suggest taking a peak before you attempt this for the first time.

Today’s brown butter pastry is made almost exactly the same with the exception of browning the butter first and using an egg. The egg makes the crust more like a shortbread but it’s still super flaky.

This recipe may actually be my new favorite. It goes so well with apple pie and I can’t wait to try it with other fruit fillings.
