All Butter Pie Crust Directions

  • I have mixed the flour and salt in a bowl and put it in the freezer as well. having all the ingredients very cold is the key to making this butter crust.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  • I've never waited 4 hours for it to refrigerate, 2 hours is the longest refrigeration time I've ever given the dough before using it the same day. I have made it and placed it in the fridge overnight to use the next day..
  • Roll dough out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.
