Basic Pie Crust

22 Apr

(For double-crust 9-inch pie)

Ingredients:
2 cups Domata Recipe Ready Flour
1 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter flavored vegetable shortening
¼ cup ice water
Egg wash (1 egg + 1 Tbs. water) or milk for brushing on crust

Directions:
Blend flour and salt in mixing bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender. Sprinkle in ice water, one tablespoon at a time. Continue mixing until all flour is moistened and dough cleans sides of bowl, 1-2 additional tablespoons of ice water may be added, if necessary, but only enough to pull the dough together.

Divide dough into two, with one ball slightly larger than the other. Roll out dough on lightly floured wax paper to diameter at least 1” larger than pie plate. Place dough on wax paper in refrigerator for 20 minutes before placing in pie plate.

Ease bottom crust into pie plate and trim evenly around plate. Fill unbaked pie crust according to recipe directions. Lift top crust onto filled pie. Trim dough with ¾” overhang. Crimp edges of pie crust together to seal. Cut slits in top of crust. Brush with egg wash and bake pie according to recipe directions

    I love cooking with Domata flour. I just tried the basic pie crust and it is every bit as delicious as the ones I bought frozen from high-foods market, and it is more convenient and economical. I used it for a peach pie and it baked up wonderfully. I am going to try it next for a savory pie, chicken pot pie. I will use this recipe for my holiday baking. Thank you Domata. 🙂
