Pie Crust

Pie Crust

For a visual step-by-step guide of this, click How to Make and Roll Out Pie Dough.Makes 1 pie crust

 

2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon sugar 1/2 cup butter 3 tablespoons shortening 5 to 6 tablespoons cold water

 

1  Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a bowl. 2  Cut in butter and shortening with a pastry blender (use your hands or two knives if you don't have one) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 3  Add cold water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture comes together. Form into a ball. Do not overwork dough. 4  Cover ball of dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 to 15 minutes. 5  Remove plastic wrap. On a floured surface and using a floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a circle large enough to cover pie plate. If any holes or tears result, pinch off a piece of dough from edge of crust and patch hole. 6  Transfer pie dough from work surface to pie plate. To transfer, place the rolling pin on top of the dough and roll the dough onto the pin. 7  Gently place rolling pin on top of pie plate and unroll dough. Still working with a light hand, pat crust to mold it to the shape of the plate. 8  Lift pie plate with one hand. Using your other hand, remove overhanging edges with a knife, working all the way around. Reserve excess dough for decorating top of pie crust or for making smaller pies. 9  Decorate edges by using your fingers to create curved edges. You can also use a fork to simply crimp edges. Fill with your choice of filling, bake, and enjoy. RELATED:  How to Make Basic Pie Crust

    I've made a couple of pies, and pielets/tarts using this pie crust recipe, and so far, all of them have came out wonderfully flaky. However, I noticed that the pie crust tastes salty when eaten without filling. I use unsalted butter every time I use this recipe to make pie crusts so I'm not sure why it still tastes salty.
