I'm pretty good at making alot of things but a flaky pie crust is not one of them. Years and years ago I came across a recipe for a simple butter crust and it's been my go-to recipe ever since.
Butter Pie Crust
What You Need:
- 1 1/4 c. flour
- 1/4 t. salt
- 1/2 c. butter
- 1/4 c. water (or less)
Mix together all ingredients besides the water. You can soften the butter just a bit but make sure you cut it in, don't melt it.
Slowly add in the water until the dough is the right consistency. You may not need the full 1/4 cup.
