This quantity is perfect for a 9-11 inch pie using pastry on the top and bottom as per my chicken pie recipes. If you own a food processor, it will become your best friend for the simplest yet best pie crust you will ever taste.
The secret is keeping everything cold. The butter, the eggs, the water and even the food processor bowl. Because your hot little fingers don’t come into contact with the ingredients, the butter stays cold and this is what gives you the flaky crust. It takes less than 5 minutes to make and you will never buy it again. Using eggs makes the dough more pliable and easy to roll out. It makes the crust more compact and a little stronger in structure working better for moist contents.
If making a 9 inch pie, and rolled medium thinly as per video, these measurements are perfect with virtually no wastage. If a little larger, you’ll want to increase the measurements by 50%. Enjoy my amazing pie crust recipe.
