So excited to share my Perfect Homemade All Butter Pie Crust with you today!
Baking pies this time of year is one of my favorite things to do! You can give them as gifts or get creative making your own original filling. Makes baking pies this season a delicious experience!
I shared this photo on Instagram a few weeks ago. It’s not perfect, but it shows what kind of fabulous dough this recipe makes 🙂
This recipe is in my Cookbook, however I’ve updated a few steps so I thought I’d share it!
Tips For Making The Perfect Pie Crust
- Prepare the dough in a stand mixer
- Make sure your butter is VERY cold
- Beat pie crust until butter is the size of small peas with the flour mixture
- 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.
- Over kneading can make crust tough.
- Divide dough in half and flatten slightly.
- Wrap each piece of dough tightly with plastic wrap.
- Refrigerate dough for 2-3 hours before using for best results.
- Store dough wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 1 week in refrigerator or 2 months in the freezer.
- 2 3/4 cups All Purpose Gold Medal Flour
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 sticks cold unsalted butter cubed
- 1/2 cup ice water
- Add the flour, sugar and salt to a stand mixer with paddle attachment. Beat on low to combine. Add cold butter, beat until butter is the size of small peas with the flour mixture.
- With the mixer on, slowly add the ice water until dough forms and is combined.
- Transfer dough to a lightly floured countertop, kneading a couple times to combine. Divide dough in half, flatten slightly and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours before using. When ready to use, roll out round large enough to fit your pie plate. Transfer to pie dish and crimp the edges as desired. Poke holes at the bottom of pie. Bake for 25-30 minutes until baked through and slightly golden. Remove and let cool before filling. If using a pie filling recipe that needs baked, bake according to that particular recipe.
- Store dough wrapped in plastic wrap for up to 1 week in the refrigerator or 2 months in the freezer.
