Basic Pie Crust 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
  • Start with flour
  • Add salt
  • Add sugar & Mix dry ingredients
  • 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
  • Add Water using the smaller amount, to begin with, mix (pulse again with a 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
  • Pop in the fridge to cool for about 4 hours
  • When you are ready to use it – let it thaw, then  cut in half and roll each half between 2 sheets of wax paper
  • That’s it!

Now,  here’s a version without pictures to print and save on ink! 🙂
