Mom’s Pie Crust

  • Author: MearaMay


Basic pie crust that won’t fail you. 



12 tbsp cold butter

2 c flour

pinch of salt 

1 tsp sugar

Ice water


Mix together until the butter is in small pieces. Use 2 knives to mix/cut the mixture. 

Add 4 to 6 tbsp ice water to the flour mixture, and add 1 more – just enough to barely form a ball. 

Refrigerate dough, covered, for 30 min. Must be at least 25. 

Roll out on a floured board with a towel. Flip over once, then roll to a pie sized dish. Prick the crust and bake 350 for 10-15 min.
