How To Make Pie Crust
You’ll start with flour, sugar, salt, cold cubed butter and ice cold water. See recipe below for exact details. Use your paddle attachment or whisk attachment works great too. When dough just comes together, stop the mixer.
Transfer dough to a lightly floured counter top or parchment paper.
Divide dough into 2 rounds to get ready to chill in refrigerator.
Wrap each dough round in plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator 2 hours before rolling. You can freeze for 30-45 minutes as another option.
Once dough is chilled, it’s time to roll!
Roll dough into as round of a shape as possible.
You have a couple options here. You can trim edges before transferring to your pie plate as I’ve done here, or trim edges once you transfer to pie plate.
Carefully transfer dough to your pie plate.
Crimp edges and you’re ready to fill your pie crust!
Tips For Making The Perfect Pie Crust

- Add ice water to mixture until dough forms
- When you transfer dough make sure you transfer to a clean floured counter top.
- Only knead your dough a couple times to combine.
