It’s that time of year – time to fire up the oven, grab the rolling pin and get ready to bake the most delicious pie ever! Baking pies, in my opinion, is a bit of an art. But I think the more the practice, the easier it gets. And having the Perfect Pie Crust Recipe is a good start!
This post is brought to you by Crisco. I’m thrilled to be a Crisco Pie Partner.
With just a few simple ingredients, you can make your own perfect pie crust too! There are a few different methods to making a Pie Crust. Today I’m sharing how to use your Food Processor. If you don’t have a Food Processor, you can learn more from Michele Stuart in the Crisco Kitchen. Before you begin, be sure that your Crisco shortening is chilled and the water is ice cold.
For the Food Processor method – first combine the flour and salt.
Next, cut the chilled Crisco into pieces.
Add the Crisco cubes to the Food Processor and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces remaining.
Add half of the recommended amount of ice water, pulse until well combined. If too dry, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time.
Wrap dough in plastic and form a disk. Chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 2 days.
