Basic Pie Crust

JunetheHomemaker's picture
Ingredients
  Flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (1 Stick)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Wear an apron, put your hair up, and work on a surface that's not your table - this can be messy!

Melt butter in a bowl until soft, but not melted. Add flour and salt. Use a pastry cutter or mix with hands until mixture can be made to stick together, but easily crumbles. Add a handful (6 to 8 tsp) cold water, knead with hands. Flour rolling surface. Roll out dough. Roll dough onto rolling pin and roll off onto pie pan. Pinch edges for a fancy touch! Fill with deliciousness and bake, covering fancy edges with aluminum foil until 5 minutes before end of cooking time.

EAT IT.
