Pie Crust

I usually use the readymade pie crusts from Traders Joes but in a pinch this recipe makes a great crust.

6 Tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces (has to be chilled)

1 ½ cups flour

About 4 Tablespoons cold water, milk, or buttermilk

(Refer to the recipe you are using to see if you need to pre-bake the crust or simply pour filling in)

Use a pastry cutter, two forks or a food processor to cut together the butter and flour

Do this until the mixture is uniformly blended and resembles coarse cornmeal. (The food processor will do this in just a few spurts.)

Add just enough cold liquid (water, milk, or buttermilk) to hold the dough together and make dough.

Roll out the dough and form a crust in a 9 or 10-inch pie pan.

Set aside.
