The Perfect Pie Crust Recipe

Recipe from addapinch.com

A pie crust recipe that works perfectly for sweet and savory pies. This pie crust recipe is made by hand and will become a favorite recipe.

Serves: 1 9-inch pie crust

Ingredients
1½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
¼ cup vegetable shortening
¼ cup butter
4-5 tablespoons ice water

Instructions
  1. Butter a 9-inch pie plate or skillet and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Cut in the shortening and butter with a pastry blender or two forks until the mixture resembles a coarse meal.
  3. Gradually add enough ice water to the mixture while mixing with a wooden spoon until a ball of dough is formed.
  4. Pour the dough onto a lightly floured sheet of plastic wrap and form into a disc. Lightly flour the top of the pie dough and place another sheet of plastic wrap on top. Rolling from the center, roll until the dough is about a ⅛-inch thickness. Remove the top piece of plastic wrap, fold the dough over and lay across the pie plate and remove the bottom piece of plastic wrap. Press the pie dough lightly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Cover the pie plate with a piece of the plastic wrap and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes to overnight.
  5. If pre-baking, use a fork and lightly prick the bottom and sides of the pie dough.Then preheat the oven to 425º F and bake the pie crust for about 8 minutes.
  6. If not pre-baking, simply fill the pie crust with pie filling and bake according to instructions for the pie recipe.


Get a Grip: A Cool Way to Reuse Your Wine Corks

Even with the best-designed pots and lids, the handles can get so hot during cooking that your hand is easily burned if you don’t think quickly enough to throw on an oven mitt. My mom’s little cork trick gets rid of the need for a mitt. The corks stay cool and create the nicest grip you could possibly imagine to lift the lid.
