This recipe makes dough for a single crust pie and it marks the beginning of the pie season in my family. I already double it to make two Thanksgiving classics: pumpkin pie and pecan pie.
I hope you like it!
Basic Pie Dough
- 1 ¾ cup of all purpose flour
- 1 Tsp . of sugar
- 12 Tbs . of cold butter
- ¼ cup of ice water
Place the flour and the sugar in the bowl of a food processor, using the dough blade. Pulse.
Add half of the butter. Pulse a few times.
Add the rest of the butter and keep pulsing until the butter and the flour form coarse crumbs.
Add some of the water and pulse a couple of times, adding more water until the crumbs form a ball.
Take the dough and make a disc. Place it on a floured plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
