How do you make the best pie?
Use high quality ingredients.
Choose a simple recipe. Classic recipes made with simple ingredients yield the best flavor.
Make your own homemade pie crust. If you’re short on time, you can use store bought pie crust, but homemade is quick and easy.
Do not skip a step in the recipe. If the recipe says to chill your pie, make sure you leave adequate time for chilling. Don’t skip or substitute ingredients and follow the instructions closely to create the best pie.
Prep your pie in advance. Prepping the pie in advance allows the flavors to rest. This helps create the best tasting pie and saves you time at dinner.
Homemade pie crust
Making a traditional homemade pie crust is quick and easy.
Combine 2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix to blend. Add 16 tablespoons (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter and beat until the texture resembles coarse cornmeal. Add 6 tablespoons cold water and blend until the dough comes together. It’s that easy!
Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
