2 pie crusts
Can you make pie crust by hand? Yes, you can make the pie crust entirely by hand. You just need your ingredients, a large mixing bowl and a bench scraper. The bench scraper helps you scrape the dough off the counter or pastry board and put it together. When you make the dough by hand many times, you’ll start to get used to the texture of the dough
Expert Tips? – Use very cold butter and shortening. – If you are only making a single-crust pie, use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the lip of the dish. Tuck the overhang underneath itself along the edge of the pie dish. Use your fingers in a pinching motion, or the tines of a fork to crimple the edge of the pie crust. – A shaggy dough is just fine. – Once you have formed the dough into a disk, wrap it and let it chill for a full hour. – When you’re ready to roll out the dough, it should take no more than 3-4 minutes to get it into the shape for your pie plate.
