Homemade Pie Crust

~ Homemade Pie Crust ~

  • 2 1/2 cups flour, (divided)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
  • 1/4 cup water

Pour two cups of flour into a large bowl.
Mix in the sugar, and salt.
Cut the butter into cubes.
Using a pastry cutter, or two forks, cut the butter into the flour mixture until the butter resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup flour. Do not over mix the flour should just coat the butter.
Slowly pour in about 2-3 Tbsp of the water.
Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands until the dough forms a ball.  If the dough is to dry add more water one Tbsp at a time.
When the dough comes together, divide it into to equal portions. At this point you can wrap the dough in plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge until you are ready to use it; up to 6 weeks. Or in the freezer for up to three months.
When you are ready to use it, place the dough between two pieces of parchment or wax paper.
Roll out the dough, starting from the center to the the edge, but never going over the edge.
Transfer the dough to a pie pan.
Smooth out the sides, trim the edges, and your done!


 This crust is perfect for ANY type of pie. Pot pie, apple pie (you can get my recipe here), pecan pie...
