"Excellent recipe. I followed it exactly. I felt like adding more water but didn't. It came out great! I made a pumpkin and strawberry pie. I may use less sugar next time since the pie is already so sweet."


2 3/4 cups Flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 1/4 teaspoon Salt
2 1/4 sticks Butter
1/2 cup Ice water

Original recipe makes 0 Servings



Mix flour, sugar, and salt together.

Cut butter into small pieces.

Using a pastry cutter blend butter into flour mixture until it looks like small peas.

Sprinkle water into mixture then toss with a fork until it forms into a ball. Refrigerate for 1 hour if you have time.

Roll out and place in pie pan.

The crust comes out better if you melt the butter

The crust was very difficult to roll out and place on top of my apple pie. Too flaky and it fell apart over and over again after redoing it countless times. Not sure if I will make again.

Excellent recipe, so easy to follow and make. I have used this recipe for two thanksgivings in a row now and any other time I make pies and I will continue to use it :) LOVE IT!

For being my first pie crust, using this recipe made it very easy. And the crust turned out flakey and amazing.
