What’s in a pie? Does it matter as long as you have the perfect pie crust? Follow these tips for a delicious crust.
- Don’t Handle More than Necessary; don’t over work the fat and flour. Cut your butter into the flour. The butter must be very cold and hard, forming pea size shapes. If the butter softens, it creates a tough crust.
- Add Minimal Water. Add water a tablespoon at a time. Stop adding water when the dough can hold together from a pinch.
