Homemade all Butter Pie Crust Recipe from Scratch
Four basic ingredients are required to achieve the perfect pie crust, butter, water, flour, and salt. An all butter pie crust results in a light, flaky, tender crust that is golden in appearance.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and grated
1/4 cup ice water,
Chill the butter until it’s very cold, then grate it with a cheese grate. Put it back in the fridge while you move to the next step.
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt.
Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the ice water a tablespoon at a time, just enough to form the dough into a ball.
Flatten the dough a bit, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Use the dough like you would any pie crust, roll it out on a very lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Or roll it out on a pastry mat. I prefer a pastry mat because then the crust doesn’t get tough.
Transfer it into the pie plate, if you’re making a single crust pie, trim and flute the edges and poke the middle with a fork. Wrap in plastic wrap and return to fridge for 20 minutes or so.
Bake the shell with a piece of foil or parchment paper weighted with pie weights, else fill with filling of your choice, top with another pie crust and bake.
For Shell, Bake in preheated oven at 375 F for 20-30 min or until golden brown, then remove the foil or parchment.
