Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 8 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 large brown egg
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Instructions

In a food processor, combine flour and salt. Add butter and pulse until mixture becomes crumbs.

In a small bowl combine egg and water and add to the food processor and pulse until the mixture clumps together.

Transfer mixture onto a plastic wrap, fold and press the crumbs until dough binds together. Shape into circle, wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

On a lightly floured surface roll dough out to 15-inch circles.

Carefully roll around the rolling pin and transfer to a 9×2 1/2-inch springform pan, pressing into the sides.

Trim overhanging dough to 1 inch and press firmly against the outside of the ring to help prevent from shrinking.

Use trimmings for top of the pie.

Freeze the shell for 20 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place pan on a baking sheet and line shell with foil, long enough to overhang from the sides.

Bake 20 minutes or until the edge of the dough lightly browned.

Remove foil and continue baking the pastry shell for 15 minutes longer or until lightly browned on the bottom.

Transfer pan onto cooking rack and let it cool before filling.
