PERFECT PIE CRUST

Provided by Ina Garten

Time 55m

Yield Makes two 9- to 11-inch crusts

Number Of Ingredients 6

12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) very cold unsalted butter
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/3 cup very cold vegetable shortening, such as Crisco
1/2 cup ice water

Steps:

  • Cut the butter in 1/2-inch dice and return it to the refrigerator while you prepare the flour mixture. Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix. Add the butter and shortening. Pulse 8 to 12 times, until the butter is the size of peas. With the machine running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse the machine until the dough begins to form a ball. Dump out onto a floured board and roll into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Cut the dough in half. Roll each piece on a well-floured board into a circle at least 1 inch larger than the pie pan, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough so it doesn¿t stick to the board. (You should see bits of butter in the dough.) Fold the dough in half, ease it into the pie pan without stretching at all, and unfold to fit the pan. With a small sharp paring knife, cut the dough 1 inch larger around than the pan. Fold the edge under and crimp the edge with either your fingers or the tines of a fork.

PERFECT PIE CRUST



Perfect Pie Crust image

The perfect pie crust is tender, light, flaky, and golden and lends itself to all of the Thanksgiving favorites.

Provided by Martha Stewart

Categories     Food & Cooking     Dessert & Treats Recipes     Pie & Tarts Recipes

Yield Makes two 8- to 10-inch crusts

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, chilled, plus more for pie plate
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling out dough
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup ice water

Steps:

  • Cut each stick of butter into 8 pieces, and refrigerate until needed. Place the flour, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl, and mix to combine.
  • Add the chilled butter. Using a pastry blender, incorporate the butter into the flour mixture; the mixture should resemble coarse meal with small pieces of butter, the size of small peas, remaining visible.
  • Drizzle 2 tablespoons ice water over the flour-butter mixture, and blend. Repeat with an additional 2 tablespoons water. At this point, you may have to add more water: When a handful of dough squeezed together just holds its shape, you've added enough; if the dough crumbles, continue incorporating water, 1 tablespoon at a time, checking the consistency after each additional tablespoon.
  • Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface. Divide into two equal pieces, and place on two separate sheets of plastic wrap. Flatten, and form two disks. Wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Lightly dust a clean, dry work surface with flour. Place the chilled dough in the center of the work surface, and dust the dough as well as the rolling pin with flour. Position the rolling pin on the center of the disk, and begin rolling the dough away from you. Give the disk a quarter turn, and roll again. Continue turning and rolling until you have an even 1/8-inch thickness. Turning the dough as you roll will prevent it from sticking to the work surface. A dry pastry brush is handy to remove any excess flour during and after the rolling process.
  • Lightly butter the pie plate. To minimize stretching when moving the dough, roll it around the pin, lift up, and unroll over the buttered pie plate. Using your fingers, gently pat the dough into place. Trim any excess dough with a paring knife or kitchen shears, leaving a 1-inch overhang; then fold dough under to reinforce the edge.

PERFECT , NEVER FAIL PASTRY CRUST



Perfect , Never Fail Pastry Crust image

I used to call my MIL the "Queen of Pies" as she would serve 2 different pies EVERY night for dinner. So...when I married her son and felt that I had to make pies... I was quite intimidated by trying to keep up to her standards. This recipe gave me enough confidence that even she gave me the "nod"!!! Obviously with practice, I have got better over the years....but this recipe was very forgiving to me when I first started out making pies!!!!

BAKEPROOF: NEVER-FAIL SHORTCRUST PASTRY : SBS FOOD

From sbs.com.au
Estimated Reading Time 4 mins
  • Keep cool. Always keep everything as cool as possible – ingredients, utensils and hands. If you have warm hands (lucky you in this weather), you’ll need to put them under cold running water for a minute before rubbing in the butter.
  • Don't get too involved. Handle the pastry as little as possible when mixing and rolling. Overworking the pastry will develop the gluten in the flour, which will make the pastry hard to roll.
  • Give your digits a workout. Use your fingertips when rubbing in the butter by hand. Don’t use the palms of your hands, as this this is the warmest part and will melt the butter.
  • Each batch is unique. Different batches of flour will absorb different amounts of liquid. You may need to add a little more water, or sometimes a little less, than the recipe states, as the quantity needed will vary slightly depending on the batch of flour and how absorbent it is.
  • Always rest the pastry. Place the pastry in the fridge, both before rolling and before baking to help any gluten that has developed during mixing relax, and to set the butter.
  • Roll in one direction. Roll the pastry in one direction at a time, starting near the centre, to prevent it from being overstretched (which will cause it to shrink considerably when baked).
  • No grease needed. There is no need to grease your tin before baking. The high butter content in the pastry will stop your tart or pie from sticking.
  • Blind bake to prevent soggy pastry. Wet fillings will stop pastry from cooking through and becoming crisp. Partially or fully blind bake your pastry case (depending on the recipe) before adding any type of wet filling.
  • Add some weight. Use pastry weights, dried beans or uncooked rice grains when blind baking. The weight of any of these will help to stop the pastry base from lifting away from the base of the tin, stop the sides from shrinking and give the case an even shape.
  • Practice makes perfect! The more you do it, the more you’ll get a feel for the texture and consistency of good pastry. So keep on rolling. Shortcrust pastry recipes.
