William’s Pie Crust

April 12, 2011

Pie Crust (enough dough for one double crust pie)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 6 oz. frozen butter, grated, and then re-frozen
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 pint heavy cream

In a large bowl, add flour, sugar, and salt.

Cut in frozen butter (use a pastry blender).

Combine lemon juice and heavy cream.

Add lemon-cream combination by the tablespoon and mix by hand only just until the dough is the right wetness.

Make two discs, wrap and refrigerate about 30 minutes.

Roll out dough, place in pie pan, add filling, cover with top crust, brush with milk and sprinkle sugar on top.

Place in preheated oven at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature of oven to about 375 and bake about 45 minutes.

You might want to place the pie/pies on a pan to stop the “juicing over” from messing up your oven.
