As I grew up my mom taught me this recipe. She always told me it was foolproof and if you are sure to use COLD ingredients and process the dough as quickly as possible it is. It results in a light flaky crust!

How to Make Foolproof pie crust


  1. In a food processor put 1.5 cups of flour and salt. Pulse it a couple of times to just quickly mix
  2. Cut cold cold cold butter into small cubes and toss into the processor over the flour and process just until it starts holding together. Add the remainder of the flour (1 cup). Blitz it ONLY a few short bursts until it looks a bit dry and crumbly.
  3. Transfer into a mixing bowl and sprinkle about 3 tablespoons of ice water and press the dough together. As I’ve water by the tablespoon until the dough is together. Do the punch test, if a pinch of the dough and it stays together it’s ready.
  4. Roll it out for your crust. This should make enough for two single crust pies or one double crust pie
