Brenham House Whistle Stop Pie is one of the many different items served, as an afternoon refreshment, to our guests. As our guests check in refreshments are left, on the sideboard, in the dining room for them to enjoy. What a wonderful treat after an afternoon of traveling, shopping or sightseeing. It gives guests a chance to rest, have a cup of coffee and a treat, before they head out for dinner. It is an easy recipe to make and the ingredients are common things that you probably already have on hand. Make this pie and you friends and family will be impressed with your cooking skills. You don’t have to tell them how easy it is to make.
- 1-1/2 c. loose brown sugar
- 6 T. flour
- pinch of salt
- 1 c. half and half
- 1 c. heavy cream
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 T. butter, cut into thin slices
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Use your favorite pie crust recipe or store bought pie dough. I put my dough in the pie pan and then I always spread softened butter on my pie unbaked pie crust. Mix brown sugar, flour, and salt together and spread on buttered pie shell. Mix the half and half and heavy cream together and vanilla together and slowly pour over the sugar mixture. Dot with butter slices and sprinkle the cinnamon over the pie. Bake pie for 10 minutes at 450 degrees and then reduce to 350 degrees for the remaining 40-50 minutes.
Brenham House Whistle Stop pie and a nice cup of tea is a great way to start your vacation. Take it outside to the front porch rockers, or walk down to the sun porch while enjoying the backyard view, or stay in the living room and visit with other guests as you enjoy your refreshments!
