You don’t have to make your own crust. But you can—even if you don't think you can. It's easy, it's simple, and it's the best crust ever. You can do it!



 

You can buy frozen pie crusts that are not bad.

But there’s a big difference between biting into a light, tasty, homemade crust and a store-bought crust, which will tend to be thicker and tougher.

I guess you can see my bias!

But once in a while, when you want to make a pie in a hurry, sure, buy a frozen crust.

After you’ve made a few pie crusts of your own, however, and discovered how simple and easy it is (and heard the praise from your family and friends!), I guarantee you’ll be getting out the flour next time!

Here's a short video (4 minutes) I made to show you how to do it, and how easy it is. More...

Butter Crust
My husband's favorite because of its rich flavor. You can make it by hand, or using a food processor. More...

Shortening Crust
Not as flavorful as a butter crust, but lighter, flakier, and lactose-free. You can make it by hand, or using a food processor. More...

Baked Pie Crusts
Fruit pies are among the most delicious...and the easiest to make. Usually, you bake the crust by itself, then fill it with fruit to finish. More...

Pies need no fancy finish, but pie-eaters love a nicely decorated top...and it's fun! You can even make one of those wonderful lattice pie crusts. More...

Whole Wheat Pie Crust
Not as light or flaky, but with a deep, rich flavor well suited to certain pies. More...
