Pie Crust Recipe

Posted By Smockity Frocks On August 26, 2008 @ 12:40 pm In Recipes | 3 Comments

I got this super simple pie crust recipe from my friend, Shelley, a few years ago, and I haven’t bought a ready made pie crust since.

It couldn’t be easier to whip up, and it always turns out wonderfully flaky and light.

Try it yourself, and see what I mean!

Pie Crust

1 1/4 cups flour
dash of salt
1/2 cup cold butter
2-3 Tbsp. cold water

Mix first 3 ingredients in food processor until crumbly. Add water. Mix until a ball forms. Refrigerate 1-2 hours.

I have found the key is making sure the butter and water are very cold. I always have a glass of ice water that I drizzle into the feed tube of the food processor when it comes time to add the water.
