CakeSpy for Craftsy: How to Make Pie Crust

Pie crust

“We must have a pie. Stress cannot exist in the presence of a pie.” – David Mamet

While most of us can thoroughly agree with Mamet, his sentiment does not always extend to the crust. For some reason, people fear pie crust. 

Perhaps that’s because of how many strict rules appear in the recipes. The ingredients must be cold. You must not overwork the dough. You must not put too much water in the mix. But really, rules aside, pie crust is a fairly simple thing to make. True, to hone it to an art may take time and require some trial and error, but really, doesn’t just about anything worthwhile?

That is to say that it’s well worth the time to try this simple (and forgiving) classic pie crust recipe.

My favorite recipe of pie crust is this one by Nana http://mp3pole.com/video/XHUwGaJD2pw/Perfect-Pie-Crust-Recipe-Nana-s-Secret-Recipe-and-Tips . To be honest I am not that great at cooking that's why I am constantly following all sorts of DIY guides and instructions on cooking. At least in this way I can come up with something that my family members can eat. Thanks a lot for this recipe as well, I'll save this one to try out soon. I like experimenting with recipes so I am very glad I stumbled upon your blog.

I'm not a fan of butter crusts for some reason. Coconut oil works really well though.
