How To Make Flaky Homemade Pie Crust
Why bother going to the store when you have this homemade pie crust recipe? You only need 4 ingredients to make this perfectly flaky crust.
Using a whisk, combine flour and salt in a large bowl.
Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter and shortening until the mixture resembles the size of peas.
Add ice-cold water one tablespoon at a time to one area of the dough and mix with a fork.
Move to one side of the bowl and continue adding water just until the dough is moistened but not sticky.
Once mixed, quickly and gently fold over the dough a couple of times. Divide into two balls.
Roll one of the balls on a lightly floured surface to create a 12-inch circle.
Gently roll the dough onto a rolling pin and unroll over a 9-inch pie pan.
Cut the edges so you have about a ½-inch overhang.
Crimp the edges and bake according to recipe directions.
1. Use your hands to gently fold over the dough after mixing.
