Flaky Pie Crust Recipe - Holistic Wellness and Health

 Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups of flour
    • 1 cup of vegan butter, diced into 1/2 inch cubes and chilled
    • 1 teaspoon of salt
    • 1 teaspoon of sugar
    • 6 tablespoons of ice water, plus more as needed

Instructions

  • Combine the flour, salt, and sugar in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse a few times to combine.
  • Add in HALF of the cold butter cubes and pulse a few more times. Add in remaining butter and pulse a few additional times so that the butter is roughly the size of peas.
  • Add in the cold water, starting with just 4 tablespoons, and pulse 2 times. Add in 2 more and pulse a couple more times. Test out the dough by pressing some together between your fingers. If it holds together then it’s ready. If it’s still really crumbly then add in more water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Mine is always perfect with 6 total tablespoons but you may need a little more less. 
  • On a lightly floured surface, pour out the dough and work it so that’s it’s mostly pressed together. Split it in half evenly and form 2 discs with the dough. Wrap the discs individually in plastic wrap and CHILL for 1 hour or up to 2 days.
  • When ready to use the dough, let it sit on the counter for about 10 minutes to warm up a bit. If you’re making a double crust pie, I like to roll out the bottom crust and let it sit in the fridge chilling while I roll out the top crust.
  • To make things easier, roll the dough out on a floured piece of parchment paper using a floured rolling pin. It will likely be very crumbly at first but work it with your hands a few times so that it’s pliable and easy to roll out. Roll it out so that it will fit in your pie dish with about 1/2 an inch hanging over. Place it in your greased pie dish (a standard 9″ pie dish is perfect) and proceed with your pie recipe!
