How To Make mama baker's homemade pie crust

  • 1
    Butter all cut up.
  • 2
    Ice cold water.
  • 3
    Combine flour, salt and sugar in your food processor, and pulse to mix.
  • 4
    Put all butter in there and pulse 10 or so times.
  • 5
    You will have a coarse type of mixture. It will be crumbly and we want it to stay this way.
  • 6
    While you are pulsing your crust slowly add a little water at a time, checking after every 1 or 2 tablespoons of ice cold water. When it looks like this you are where you should be!
  • 7
    Pour it out on a clean dry surface and it will be a pile like this
  • 8
    You can press your hand down on the crust to start putting it together.
  • 9
    Work it fast and make a large ball.
  • 10
    Cut in to two. Wrap in cling wrap and put in fridge for at least an hour, but up to a couple days. You see three here because I made the recipe one time, then halved it for a third pie.
  • 11
    Take your crust out and let it rest for a few minutes, in the meantime flour your surface and prepare to roll.
  • 12
    roll your dough a little bigger than your pan 12 or 13 inches or so.
  • 13
    Here are two of the three pie crusts.
  • 14
    I'm doing two pumpkin and one sweet potato.
  • 15
    After baking in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, then 50 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
  • 16
    Just one more picture of the two. I'll add the sweet potato later. I wished I wrote down recipe, I just threw it together.
