Homemade Pie Crust tastes so much better than the store-bought kind! It’s also easier to make than you might think, especially when you follow this simple recipe.
All-purpose flour Granulated sugar Salt Unsalted butter Ice cold water
Mix the dry ingredients. Pulse the flour, sugar, and salt a few times in a food processor.
Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse meal. The mixture should be powdery and dry.
Add the water and pulse a few more times, or until the dough sticks together between your fingers. You can add more water a tablespoon at a time if needed.
Transfer the dough to a work surface and form 2 equal-size pieces of dough. Wrap each in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour until you’re ready to use them.
The flavor is buttery, the texture is perfectly flaky, and instead of playing second fiddle to the pie filling, a good homemade pie crust is just as delicious as what’s inside!
