The Best Ever Pie Crust

by - 12/22/2016 11:30:00 AM



Recipe adapted from

One of my goals for the New Year is to stop buying
pre made
pie crust. I know, that may sound simple. However, for someone that enjoys baking, I should try a little harder a preparing my own pie crust and freezing the dough for future use. During the holidays. It's just more convenient to just purchase the crust and keep it moving. I was really craving sweet potato pie for the last couple of weeks and was sick the first week of December and all last week I volunteered my time helping those in need. So when I finally had the chance I sat down and researched recipes. I came across this recipe and was hesitant at first. I was being lazy and daunting the task of cleaning my food processor after making the recipe. All I could think to myself “was could I just make this recipe by hand?” I followed the recipe to a T and did use my food processor. Which I was happy that I did because now I have another use for it. Besides making black bean burgers, hummus, and prepared veggies. This recipe was super easy to make and it came out perfect. I didn't have any problems with the dough at all. It wasn't too sweet or too hard to manage. I decided to freeze the other half for future use by wrapping it in plastic wrap. This recipe is now my go-to pie crust recipe.

 Do you make your own pie crust? 







Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 12 tablespoons (very cold) unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 1/3 cup (very cold) vegetable shortening
PREP WORK (1 hour prior to making)
Place 3 cups of flour in the freezer in a ziplock bag
Dice 12 tablespoons of butter and place it in the freezer-Add the 1/3 cup of vegetable shortening to the bowl as well (in a freezer safe bowl)
1/2 of water to the freezer (make sure the water doesn't freeze completely. 

Directions


  1. Take the flour out of the freezer and place the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix. 
  2. Take the butter and shortening out of the freezer and add it to the flour mixture. Pulse 8 to 12 times, until the butter is the size of peas. 
  3. With the machine running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse the machine until the dough begins to form a ball.
  4.  Dump out on a floured board and roll into a ball. 
  5. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. (or freeze until you're ready to use it.)
  6. Cut the dough in half. Roll each piece on a well-floured board into a circle, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough to make sure it doesn't stick to the board. Fold the dough in half, place in a pie pan, and unfold to fit the pan. Repeat with the other crust.
