Flaky Pie Crust Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter cubed and chilled
  • 1 piece Egg (yolks only), beaten
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons water ice-cold


  • Mix flour and salt in a bow then sift once.
  • Add butter and toss with your hands until just coated. Rub butter and flour between thumb and forefingers until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add egg and toss well using a fork.
  • Sprinkle 1 tablespoon water at a time and toss gently with a fork. Repeat just until mixture is moistened and can be formed into a ball. The dough should hold together when picked up and pressed, and should not crack.
  • Flatten ball of dough into 2 disks. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes or overnight.
  • Remove one disk of dough from refrigerator. Turn onto very lightly floured surface. If the dough is too hard, allow it to sit for 5 minutes to soften. Roll dough gently, use a back and forth motion from center using a rolling pin. Do not roll over the edge or it will be thin. Turn dough 45 degrees between each roll to keep it round. If dough sticks to surface, dust lightly with flour. Roll to 12 inches in diameter for a 9-inch pie.
  • Transfer dough to 9-inch pie plate, being careful to avoid stretching the dough. Trim the edge leaving a 1/2 to ¾-inch overhang.
  • Fill, decorate, and bake according to pie recipe.
