As I talk with friends who love pie but don’t make pies, they complain, “I don’t know how to make pie crust.” Well, I’m happy to say: making pie crust is simple & easy!


It takes just 4 ingredients (flour, fat, salt and water) and 4 minutes. Mix the flour and the fat, add the water, make the dough into a ball, and roll it out—that’s it!

Then, here's all you need to know about pie crust, whether plain or fancy, made with butter or shortening, by hand or in a food processor. I've added pages about variations such as whole wheat crust, graham cracker crust and pie-top meringue:
