Who here is looking for an easy homemade pie crust recipe?
I’m sure that would be all of you. I don’t know about you guys and gals but I personally hate how long it takes to make a pie crust. You have to mix all the ingredients, form the dough, mess with it for a few minutes, then wrap and let it rest for who knows how long. THEN, you have to roll it out on your countertop, which leaves a mess, put it into your pie pan, and prebake before filling it. That’s a lot of hassle! Welp, you find any of that labor-intensive hubbub with this recipe.
Pat a Pan pie crust is a very easy crust to make and you can get it done rather quickly in comparison to other crust recipes. You whip up all your ingredients and transfer them directly to the pie plate.
This method is so easy and lets you immediately fill the crust with your pie filling. No prebaking! I know you folks will enjoy this pie crust recipe as much as I do. Happy baking!
There are times when you really want pie, but you really don’t want to go to the trouble of making pie crust. The cutting in of the cubed butter, the systematic spooning of the ice water, flour all over the counters as you work the dough out with a rolling pin… Some days it seems meditative and other days it just seems like a hassle.
Well, this no-fuss crust is never a hassle. There’s no rolling, no cutting in, and it bakes up beautifully.
Yes, you heard that right. No rolling!
You mix all the ingredients together in a bowl: flour, oil, cold water (no need for ice), baking powder, and salt, and then press the dough into the pie dish. You can press it out with your hands or a flat-bottomed glass; it only takes a few moments.
