Butter Pie Crust

Pecan Pie Filling


Butter Pie Crust

  • Add flour and salt to food processor, pulse a few times.
  • Add cold cubed butter and pulse until course crumbs appear.
  • Add egg and 4 tablespoons of cold water, pulse until it starts to form a dry crumbly dough.
  • Add another 2 tablespoons of water to form a slightly crumbly dough that is clumping together. If needed add another 1 tablespoon at a time to form the dough.
  • Dump out dough and form into 2 even discs. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour. Add the extra pie crust to a freezer safe bag and freeze it for later.
  • Roll out dough into a 12 inch circle about ⅛ inch thick.
  • Place dough in pie plate, roll and crimp edges. Place crust on baking sheet and chill crust until ready to use.
