How to make it

  • Combine flour, salt and sugar
  • Add butter cubes and mash into flour mixture with spoon until crumbly
  • Add water and knead dough together with hands until you can form a ball
  • (If the mixture doesn't stay together, add more water)
  • cut mixture in half and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours (can be stored for up to two days)
  • Remove from refrigerator
  • Let stand at room temp for 5 to 10 min so that it will soften enough to roll, if it's too hard microwave it for 2 mins.
  • Roll out with rollinig pin on a lightly floured surface to a 12 inch circle, about 1/8 of an inch thick, make sure that it's not sticking to the surface, if it is sprinkle more flour on surface.
  • Carefully place in a 9 inch pie pan (What works best for me is to do place the pie pan on top of the rolled dough and turn it over)
  • Mold to pan, cut away and create crust
  • Add pie filing
  • Roll out 2nd ball of dough
  • Roll as before
  • Gently place on top of filling in pie pan
  • Pinch top and bottom of dough rounds together
  • If you're making a pie that does not have a top, this recipe will yield two pies.

    This sounds like a lovely pie crust recipe and you've got my 5 forks! I agree with Pieplate with the reduced sodium and increased sugar but whatever works for whoever is preparing it is my motto ;) Thanks for a great recipe and thanks to Pieplate for the input.
