Have you ever shied away from making a tasty dessert just because it required pie crust? We have. It wasn’t until we came up with this fool-proof recipe that we realized we could have reliably delicious results every time, without worrying about how the crust would turn out!
First and foremost, you want to use cold ingredients. The beauty of a good pie crust is that it’s buttery and flaky, and the only way you can achieve that is by keeping the ingredients cold, so the butter doesn’t warm up and release its moisture (which causes the beautiful flakiness) before baking. You always want your butter chunks to be visible and just remember to chill, chill, chill; we promise you, the added time needed to adequately chill your dough pays off tenfold when you see the heavenly, flaky result…seriously, there’s no more need to worry, you’ve got this!
