Easy Pie Crust

  • Prep Time15 min


  • 2 Cups Unbleached Flour
  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter, cut into 1/2” cubes and chilled
  • 1 tsp salt (omit if using salted butter)
  • 1/3 to 1/2 Cup Ice Cold Water



In a large mixing bowl, stir together Unbleached Flour and Salt, then add the chilled Butter


Using a pastry cutter, or two knives, chop and mix until pea sized crumbs appear.


Add Ice Water one or two tablespoons at a time, mix with a fork or your hands until a dough forms. Lumps of Butter are ok.


Form the dough into two discs less about 1” thick, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least two hours.


On a well floured surface, roll into a circle just larger than your pie pan.


Place dough in pie pan – don’t force it to the shape.


Cut excess dough off and either crimp the edges or fill and place the 2nd dough on top then press together with your knuckles or a fork.
