How to Make Butter Pie Jeff Ruby?

Making the Crust:

Step 1:

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C) to ensure it reaches the right temperature while you prepare the crust.

Step 2:

In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup of granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add 1/2 cup of cold, cubed unsalted butter. Use your fingers, and work the butter into the flour mixture until it forms coarse crumbs, resembling small peas.

Step 3:

Incorporate 3 tablespoons of ice water into the mixture, adding one tablespoon at a time. Mix gently until the dough begins to come together.

Step 4:

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and shape it into a disk. Wrap the disk in plastic wrap and refrigerate it for at least 30 minutes.

Step 5:

Once chilled, place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll it out to fit a 9-inch pie dish. Carefully transfer the rolled dough to the pie dish, pressing it gently into the bottom and sides. Trim any excess dough hanging over the edges.

Step 6:

Line the crust with parchment paper and fill it with pie weights. This prevents the crust from puffing up during baking. Bake the crust for 15 minutes, then remove the weights and parchment paper. Continue baking for an additional 10 minutes, After that Allow the crust to cool completely before adding the filling.

Preparing the Filling:

Step 1:

In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of heavy cream, 1/4 cup of melted unsalted butter, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, and 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt. Stir the ingredients together over medium heat.

Step 2:

Once the mixture reaches a boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning.

Step 3:

Carefully pour the thickened filling into the cooled pie crust, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

Adding the Caramel Topping:

Step 1:

Warm the caramel sauce: In a small saucepan or microwave, gently heat 1/2 cup of caramel sauce until it becomes pourable. Be careful not to overheat it, as it can burn easily.

Step 2:

Drizzle the warm caramel sauce over the filling as they do in Jeff Ruby, spreading it evenly with a spatula to cover the entire surface. The caramel will add a beautiful glossy finish and an extra layer of sweetness to the pie.

Final Step:

Place the pie in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours to allow the filling and caramel topping to set completely. and Enjoy.
