It is not difficult to bake one. Here are the tips to make a perfect pie crust:
- Butter and water should be ice cold
- Handle the dough as little as possible. Overworking the dough will make it tough.
- Gradually add enough water to form into a pliable dough. It must sticks together and not crumbly.
- Refrigerate the dough before rolling out
- Prepare the filling 10 minutes before removing the dough from the refrigerator.
The following recipe produces a flaky and tender crust that is so easy to handle. It turns out perfectly every time!
