Dough for single-crust pie
1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
1 tablespoon plus 1 cup all-purpose flour, divided

2-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, egg, corn syrup and vanilla extract. Slowly stir in water. Cook over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil, 3 to 4 minutes. Cool slightly.
3. In second bowl, combine remaining brown sugar and flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, nutmeg and salt; cut in butter until crumbly.
