Five Minute Pie Crust

 Five Minute Pie Crust:
(Butter cubed, Ice Water, Flour, Sugar, Salt)

I love Thanksgiving!
It's the way the holiday's should be.
Getting together with family and enjoying good food, fellowship, and fun.
Giving Thanks to the Lord for all the blessings He has given us!
No stress over spending money on gifts!!
Yes, Thanksgiving is wonderful.

Before you run out and get that store bought pie crust, give this one a try.
It is so simple. I promise :)
Then fill. Bake and enjoy!

First I cube my butter and stick it in the freezer while I get my other ingredients around.
COLD BUTTER..is the secret to a GREAT pie crust.
Grab the food processer. Place flour, butter, sugar, salt, and water(4TB) into processor.

It will start to look like this
add another 2 TB Ice Water
Pluse. Now it looks like this
Keep pulsing until you get this
It was easy, huh?
Dump the dough unto some plastic wrap
Wrap it up quick. Don't touch it to much.
You don't want to melt the butter.
Now, place this in the fridge for a few hours.
Or a few days.  Then roll it out fill.

Perfect Pie Crust:
(9 inch pie plate)

1 1/3 Cup Flour
1 Stick Butter- cubed (very cold)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Sugar

Double Crust:

2 1/2 Cups Flour
