    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    pie crust

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Insert metal blade into your food processor.
    2. 2
      Add flour, butter and salt and process until mixture is like coarse meal; it takes about 8 to 10 seconds.
    3. 3
      Add ice water and pulse, not process, until dough begins to clump together; don't let it form a ball.
    4. 4
      Remove dough from processor and place in a freezer-size plastic storage zippie bag.
    5. 5
      Work through the bag to press dough together into a ball; then press into a flat disc.
    6. 6
      Refrigerate dough for at least 1 hour.
    7. 7
      When you need it, roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
    8. 8
      Makes enough dough for a single 9 or 10-inch pie shell.
    9. 9
      Note that this is the recipe provided by Cuisinart; I am not quite as fussy and it always works for me; the key is the ice-cold butter, the ice-cold water, and not letting it process too long.

      This was good and easy. I was able to roll it out for a double crust also. Thanks for a simple, delicious recipe.

      Super easy pie crust. I was able to get crusts for a double crust pie out of the dough. Thanks for sharing!

      This just didn't work for me. Although it was easy to put together and very easy to roll out, I found the finished crust to be somewhat salty and doughy tasting. Usually, butter makes for a crispier crust. No baking temp was given, so I baked it at 375° for about 15 minutes. Perhaps it needed a higher oven temp and longer baking time. Sorry, Lennie.
