A simple, yet tasty pie crust.

Top Review by awalde

Perfect recipe that I used for Recipe #457277.<br/>Assembling the ingredients worked very well and the quanties worked for a 10 inch pie/tart crust.<br/>I used a silicon map for rolling out and trasfer to the pie mold. This makes the work much easier and you will not need to pie a ready pie crust!<br/>Thanks a lot for this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 12 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 12 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 12 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg yolk

  1. Sift the flour with the salt into a bowl.
  2. With a pastry blender or the fingertips, blend the butter into the flour and salt mixture. Stir in the egg yolk and water.
  3. Form the pastry into a ball. Wrap it in wax paper and chill for two hours. Knead the pastry for one minute or until it holds together.
