All Purpose Pie Crust

Yields one 10-inch round


1½ cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar, optional

8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into ½-inch cubes

4 tablespoon ice cold water


Add the flour, salt, sugar and the cold butter in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal, about 2 minutes.

While the motor is running, slowly add the cold water. Pulse until the dough just starts to hold together, about 30 seconds; careful not to over process.

Remove the dough and form into a flat disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to overnight.

Roll out the chilled pastry dough between two pieces of parchment paper wrap, into a 10” round.

Remove the parchment paper, drape the dough over the rolling pan and transfer to a 9” pie pan.

Undrape the dough over the pan and press it lightly onto the bottom and sides of the pan; trimming and discarding any extra from the top of the pie pan.

Fill as desired and bake according to recipe directions.

Cooking Tips:


Plan your menu around your grocer's weekly sales ad. Your ingredients will be in stock, in season, and on sale!


Shop, Cook & Eat Seasonally. In-season produce is fresh, inexpensive, and tasty!


Cook Once & Eat Twice. Cook a double batch of dishes like soups, beans and chili-for those days you don't feel like cooking!
