Grandma Millers Famous Pie Crust

Ingredients


 2 ¼ cups Fyler Farms sifted wheat flour, plus extra for rolling

 ¾ cup (1.5 sticks or 6 ounces ) unsalted butter softened

 1 teaspoon salt

 1 teaspoon sugar

 ½ cup ice water


METHOD


1 Mix flour, sugar, and salt: Mix flour, sugar, and salt into the bowl of a mixer.


2 Add butter, half at a time, pulsing several times after each addition: Add about half

of the butter to the mixer and mix with a bread hook until it is evenly mixed. Then add

the rest of the butter and the ice water. Continue to mix until the dough comes together

in a solid dough ball.


3 Separate the dough: Divide the dough mixture into two even-sized pieces and place

the dough in the fridge for an hour.


4 Remove dough from refrigerator and let sit for a few minutes: Remove one crust

disk from the refrigerator. Let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes in order to soften

just enough to make rolling out a bit easier.


5 Roll out dough, place in pie dish: Roll out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured

surface to a 12-inch circle; about 1/8 of an inch thick. As you roll out the dough, check if

the dough is sticking to the surface below. If necessary, add a few sprinkles of flour under

the dough to keep the dough from sticking.

Carefully place onto a 9-inch pie plate. Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines

the bottom and sides of the pie plate.

Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pie

dish.


6 Add filling to the pie.
