Easy Homemade Pie Crust Recipe

Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/4 cups of sprouted flour
  • 2 sticks of butter cubed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 8 Tbs of ice water
  • For a sweet pie add 3 Tbs of sugar I use coconut sugar or maple sugar.

Instructions
 

  • Cut cold butter into cubes and return to the fridge while preparing the other ingredients.
  • Put the flour and salt (and sugar, if making a sweet pie) into a food processor.
  • Put the ice water into a small bowl.
  • Add the butter to the food processor and pulse until the mixture looks like wet sand.
  • Begin to add the ice water 1-2 Tbs at a time, pulsing after each addition.
  • When the dough begins to come together in one lump, it is done.
  • Divide the dough in half.
  • Form into a ball with as little handling as possible.
  • Wrap each ball separately in plastic wrap.
  • Flatten each dough ball into a thick disk.
  • Refrigerate for for at least 45 minutes.
  • When the pie filling is ready, remove the crust from the refrigerator and roll out as usual.
