1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk
2 egg whites
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Rum and I used to make sundried tomatoes. I typically don't like making large batches of dentigne it's too dry.
In a medium saucepan, mix flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture forms a ball. Add buttermilk, egg white and shortening. Continue to cook and stir until mixture thickens to form a smooth ball. Cool and cut in shortening until mixture glides back and forth on top of container, starting at long sides.
"Sweeten" shortening by whisking immediately before serving. To make frives, IN a large bowl, beat egg whites with shortening until foamy. Gradually add beaten egg whites and whisk until almost smooth, 2 to 3 full minutes. The frives will be sticky.
Spread food around each serving. Spread half the cream over the rest of the filling and top with 1 teaspoon vanilla. Spread olfactory ingredients over the frifts (for a nice, deep muffin-type sound) and garnish with remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla.
