This pie crust is my favorite recipe, and so easy to make. It yields a flaky crust that’s perfect for savory dishes.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 and 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
- 1 stick of cold, unsalted butter, cubed
- 1 tsp of salt
- 1 tsp of sugar
- Ice water
How You Make It:
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (204 degrees Celsius)
In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Mix together until combined. Add cubed butter and rub together with your fingers until a loose, sand like texture forms, with a few pea sized pieces of butter.
Slowly add ice water until the dough is crumbling, but comes together when squeezed.
Form the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Store in fridge until the dough is firm, or up to three days.
Remove dough from fridge and roll out on a floured surface.
Place in a pie pan, fitting the dough into the bottom and corners of the pan, leaving a small amount of dough over lapping on the sides to take shrinking into account. Prick the bottom and sides of the dough.
Bake 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
