Making pie crust always intimidated me for some reason, BUT NO MORE!
This is so crazy easy! So flaky! No fail! During the holidays when I know I'll be using a lot of pie crust I make up 3 or 4 at a time and keep them refrigerated.
The flaky buttery taste will make you say "no more" bought pie crust too!
If you're intimidated like I was..just give it a try...you'll be so pleasantly surprised YOU CAN DO IT!

How to Make Pie Crust

Step-by-Step

  1. Dice the butter and return it to the refrigerator.
  2. Combine flour,salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade.
    Pulse 2-3 times to mix.
  3. Add butter and shortening.
    Pulse 8-12 times until the mixture has a "pea size" texture.
  4. With the food processor running, add the ice water and pulse the machine until the dough forms a ball.
    Dump dough out on to a floured surface.
  5. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 -1 hour.
  6. When you're ready to make the pie crust cut the dough in half and place 1 half out on a floured surface.
    Roll from the center to the edge, then rotate the dough one quarter turn. Repeat rolling and turning until it forms a circle large enough for the pie dish.
