Baker’s Secret Pie Crust Recipe

Directions

Share

Ingredients :

  • ¾ cup cake flour
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 5 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons distilled white vinegar
  • 3 cubes ice
  • ½ cup cold water
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Measure butter & shortening onto a plate, put into freezer for about 20 minutes.

  • Step 2

    Measure cake flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, salt and baking powder into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse for a few seconds to mix.

  • Step 3

    Take 1/2 of the cold butter and 1/2 of the cold shortening, put into processor with dry ingredients and pulse off and on for about 1 minute. Scrape down twice while doing this.

  • Step 4

    Take remainder of the cold butter & cold shortening and cut in very briefly with the processor, leaving visible pea-sized chunks. Do not over process at this stage!

  • Step 5

    In a measuring cup, mix egg yolk and vinegar together, add ice cubes and water. Let this get chilled, about 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Remove mixed flours and shortening from processor, put into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle approximately 4 to 5 tablespoons of this egg, water, vinegar mixture, a little at a time, mixing gently with a fork. The key to this is, you do not want a wet dough, and you do not want to overmix.

  • Step 7

    Place this dough into plastic wrap or plastic bag, chill in refrigerator for a few minutes. (May also be frozen for a few weeks at this stage for future use).

  • Step 8

    Remove from refrigerator and roll out. This makes absolutely the BEST pie crusts. I have won County Fair competitions with this pie crust. Double for making a 2-crust pie.
