Pie crust can be bought prepared, but it is also very easy to make it yourself and costs a lot less. This recipe makes a buttery and crisp crust. This crust has structure to hold your fillings inside, but it’s not so hard it’s unpleasant to eat. I am not a person that tends to like pies because usually they are frozen and the crust just tastes awfully dry and floury. That is not the case with this crust. This crust becomes flaky, has a great butter taste, and doesn’t become dry and hard. This recipe is enough for one 9 inch pie pan.
What You Will Need
- 2 Cups of Flour
- 10 Tbsp Butter, Cold
- 5-7 Tbsp Cold Water
- Large food processor or large mixing bowl and 2 knives
1. In a large food processor or mixing bowl, add the flour and butter. Cut the butter until each piece of butter is cut to the size of a pea or smaller. Add your water slowly, and mix until a dough forms.
2. Turn out dough onto cling wrap. Wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to harden up butter again. Pull out dough, roll to out to fit your pie pan, then bake according to your filling’s instruction, or at 350 F until golden.
