Never Fail Pie Crust

Pie lovers, rejoice!  A recipe for the ultimate NO FAIL pie crust — plus extra tips on how to make a perfect crust, every time!

I got this recipe from Sister Lance in Virginia. It seriously can not go wrong! It makes 5 single pie crusts and last forever in the freezer. Just wrap well in plastic and take out about an hour before you want to use it. I use it for quiche and the hand pies and dessert pies too.

Without further ado, here are my top tips for baking a great pie crust, regardless of what recipe you use:

  1. Keep your fat cold.
  2. Pea-sized specks of butter should be visible in the mixture.
  3. Refrigerate the dough after mixing – but not for too long.
  4. Roll carefully and slowly.
  5. Rechill the dough before baking.
  6. Build a protective barrier to keep the crust crisp.
  7. Make plenty and freeze!
  8. Bake your pie on the bottom rack of the oven.
