Easy pie dough - A recipe by wefacecook.com

0 minutes

Makes dough for 1 double crust pie or 2 single crust pies Dough can be frozen for up to 3 months; thaw before using.


  • 2 1/2 cups (300 grs) all-purpose flour
    1pinch of salt
    1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into small pieces and frozen 15 minutes
    1/2 cup chilled solid vegetable shortening, cut into pieces
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or white vinegar, chilled


  • In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter and shortening and pulse until coarse, pea-sized crumbs appear, about 10 seconds.
    With the machine running, add vinegar and 1/4 cup ice water and process until the dough just holds together, about 30 seconds.
    Squeeze a small amount of dough between your fingers and if it is very crumbly, add more ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time (2 tablespoons maximum). Do not over process.
    Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and push together into a rough ball.
    Knead a few times to combine, then divide into two equal balls.
    Flatten each ball into a disc with smooth edges, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
