DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium saucepan, whisk the egg until frothy.
  • Whisk in the flour.
  • Add the brown sugar, corn syrup, water, vanilla, mace, and salt and mix well.
  • Over medium-high heat, bring the mixture just to a full rolling boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • (Filling will be slightly thickened.).
  • While the filling is cooling, prepare the crumb topping.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, vanilla, cream of tartar, baking soda, mace, and salt.
  • Using a pastry blender or two forks (I use my Kitchen Aid), cut in the cold butter until the topping resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour the cooled filling into the pastry shell.
  • The pastry will be only half full but the pie will rise as it bakes.
  • Sprinkle with the crumb topping.
  • Cover the edges of the pastry with foil to prevent over browning.
  • Bake 350 for 25 minutes, then remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 minute or until the top is a deep, golden brown.
  • (Don't overbake.) The filling will be a bit soft but will firm up as it cools.
  • Cool completely before cutting.
  • Serve warm or cold.
