- A perfectly flaky and buttery texture - Only 3 ingredients and a few minutes needed to make - A blank canvas for so many different kinds of pies
- All-purpose flour - Granulated sugar - Kosher salt - Unsalted butter - Ice water
Shred butter on a box grater and freeze until frozen. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl and work frozen butter into flour until pea-sized clumps form.
Drizzle 4 tablespoons ice water over flour mixture and gently toss until dough comes together in a shaggy mass, adding extra ice water if needed.
Turn dough onto a surface and gently knead and fold until dough comes together. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or up to 6 days.
Turn chilled dough out onto a floured surface. Roll out into 12-inch circle and transfer to a 9-inch pie pan.
Leave a few inches of overhang in pan, fold edges underneath until smooth, and crimp edges. Refrigerate pie crust 30 minutes before adding any fillings and baking.
Bake pie according to specific recipe's instructions. Allow pie to cool before serving. Enjoy!
