Easy Pie Crust

Easy Pie Crust

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cup flaky crust flour
1 stick cold butter, cubed
1/4 tsp. salt
Pinch of baking powder
3 Tbsp. ice water (no ice)

Directions:

Place flour, butter, salt, and baking powder into food processor. Process until well mixed. Add ice water and continue to process just until dough ball starts to form. Processor will work very hard for a short time.

For cream pies, divide dough in half and roll out on a floured surface. You should have enough for 2 regular pie plates. Flute and then prick entire bottom and sides with a fork. Bake at 425° until lightly browned. Cool.

It should also be enough for 1 regular fruit pie...top and bottom. For a deep dish pie, you will need at least 2 batches.
