Here’s the pie crust recipe I use for my pies! It’s easy and rolls nicely! Plus, it’s nice and fluffy when baked. It’s a good – “go to” recipe!

You’ll Need:

makes (2) 9 inch crust

  • 2&1/2 cups of flour
  • 1 t of salt
  • 1 t of sugar
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter – cold – right out of the fridge, and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (or something like that!)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup of COLD water

Now, on to the crust!:

  • Use a food processor (recommended) but not pictured – I used the kitchen-aid mixer this time, but I prefer the processor
  • Go To Pie Crust Recipe
  • Start with flour

  • Add the cut up pieces of butter – (food processor method) pulse until the mixture forms small balls – or if you are using a blender Mix until it forms small balls
  • Go To Pie Crust Recipe
  • Add Water using the smaller amount to begin with, mix (pulse again with food processor) until the dough is chunky and looks like balls of dough – some of your butter might be still in pieces – that’s ok
