Gramma's Favorite Pie Dough

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Im cookin

Incredibly quick and easy pie dough. All these ingredients should be in your pantry. This is ideal for pumpkin pie or other custard pies. Roll it out a bit thicker and it will hold up to the pie. I finally converted the SO who kept insisting the store-bought were fine. Those things are thin and tasteless. Blech.

This recipe may be simple but it does not round up. the dough never formed and I had to keep on adding more and more water plus more butter till finally worked.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, or in a food processor, mix together flour and salt.
  2. Cut butter into small pieces and mix into flour.
  3. Add water. You want it just holding together, not wet and sticky, but not crumbly. Don't knead and work it too much.
  4. Chill dough before rolling out.
  5. Flour your surface and rolling pin, then roll out.
