My homemade crust recipe
by the seat of my pants
2 1/2 c flour
1 T sugar
1 t salt
3/4 c butter
6 T cold water - do not use more water, that is the secret to great crust.
Cut the butter in small pieces, add flour, sugar and salt to the mixer bowl, along with the butter. Begin mixing and let the paddle cut the butter into the flour.
While the mixer is mixing, add the water 1 T at a time. The dough will begin to cling together and work into a solid mass.
Remove dough from bowl, divide into two parts. Coat lightly with flour, and you are ready to roll out and make pie! See you tomorrow for Part 2, because easy as pie, is a true statement!
As always thanks for taking a moment to stop and say hello, I appreciate your time and your wonderful comments!
