Food Processor Pie Crust
Makes 2 crusts.
- 2 c
- 1 Tbsp
- 1/2 tsp
- 3/4 c
- vegetable shortening (butter flavor)
- 1 large
- 1 tsp
- apple cider vinegar
- 3 to 4 Tbsp
- cold water
Remove top of processor and ADD in the shortening. Turn processor on.
Combine egg and vinegar in small bowl and then add to flour mixture. (I pour in while machine is running)
While food processor is engaged in mixing the above items together, begin to add the cold water, 1 Tablespoon at a time until the dough become moist enough to form a ball and it spins around the processor bowl.
Now I use rolling pin to roll out dough to the size I need to fit my pie plate.
Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap. Put your hand under the bottom sheet and the pie crust dough.
Invert the pie plate over your hand holding the dough; Flip everything over so that the dough is in the pie plate.
Remove the plastic wrap. Using your fingers, crimp the edges and repair any "holes" you see. This dough is very forgiving.
