Homemade Pie Crust
Need an easy homemade pie crust for your next Dutch Apple Pie or Cherry Pie? This easy Homemade Pie Crust recipe only has 5 ingredients!!! This recipe makes two pie crust. One for the top and one for the bottom or for two bottom only pies.
- 2 ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- 1 cup cold butter
- ¼-1/2 cup ice cold water
In a mixing bowl add flour, salt, and sugar and mix together well. Slice butter and use a fork to mix in with flour mixture until you have a crumbly texture. Next, add cold water slowly until you get the right consistency (you don't want your dough to wet and hard to roll). I added the full ½ cup to mine. When rolling the dough, sprinkle cutting board with flour.
Use hands to knead the dough then separate the dough in half.
