I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Pie Crust
...in your mind.

Pie Crust

Makes 1 crust - If you’ve always bought dough, stop it and start making your own. Yes really.


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, very-cold, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 6 to 8 Tbsp ice water


  1. Put flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer (or processor) and turn on briefly to mix
  2. Add the butter in cubes and mix just until the pieces are the size of small peas
  3. Add water about a tablespoon at a time and mix on low only until the dough pulls together
  4. Take the dough out and flatten into a disk on a lightly flour surface
  5. Wrap in cling film and chill in the refrigerator 15 minutes up to a couple days
  6. When ready to use - gently flatten the disk, dust the top with flour, and roll out into a round approximately 12 inches in diameter
  7. Carefully transfer the dough onto a pie plate and use as normal for baking
