Browned Butter Pumpkin Pie













So I have recently discovered baking with browned butter and it is really yummy. In their pie shop, Four and Twenty Blackbirds in Brooklyn, the bakers make this awesome pumpkin pie with browned butter which gives the pumpkin a subtle butterscotch note that makes for the perfect autumnal pie. 

Browned Butter Pumpkin Pie

Your favorite crust for a 9-inch single-crust, partially prebaked 
6 tablespoons unsalted butter 
1 cup light brown sugar 
2 tablespoons water ½ cup heavy cream 
½ teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 large eggs 
2 large egg yolks 
½ teaspoon kosher salt 
12/3 cups pumpkin puree 
½ teaspoon ground allspice 
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 
Pinch ground cloves 
1 teaspoon molasses 
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 
1 cup evaporated milk 

In a heavy-bottomed skillet, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Continue to cook; the butter will foam and then begin to turn golden, then nut brown; whisk occasionally. When the butter is nut brown, immediately add the brown sugar, whisk, and then carefully add the water to loosen. 

Cook until the mixture smells caramelized and starts to darken. Note: This does not take very long! Remove from the heat and slowly add the heavy cream (the mixture will bubble rapidly) and whisk until smooth. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. Stir in the vanilla extract.
Meanwhile, position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350° F. Place the prebaked pie shell on a rimmed baking sheet. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and yolks together with the salt. Set aside. 

In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade attachment, blend the pumpkin puree with the allspice, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, molasses, and lemon juice until smooth. With the machine running on low, stream the brown-butter butterscotch through the food processor's feed tube and process until combined. Stream in the egg mixture, followed by the evaporated milk; blend until smooth, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides with a rubber scraper. 

Strain the filling through a fine-mesh sieve into a separate bowl, pressing through with a rubber scraper. Pour into the prebaked shell. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 45 to 55 minutes, rotating 180 degrees when the edges start to set, 30 to 35 minutes through baking. 

The pie is finished when the edges are set and puffed slightly and the center is no longer liquid but still quite wobbly. Be careful not to overbake or the custard can separate; the filling will continue to cook and set after the pie is removed from the oven. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack, 2 to 3 hours. Serve slightly warm, at room temperature, or cool. 

The pie will keep refrigerated for 2 days or at room temperature for 1 day.
