Baking a homemade pie is probably right up there with having a fresh vase of homegrown flowers or lighting your first fire in the winter. There is something so homey and comforting about them. Just the sight and smell of a fresh baked pie on your countertop is quite comforting.

Alot of pie bakers are often rather finicky about their crusts and the recipes can get pretty daunting. I like a fresh, simple approach to the kitchen and so naturally my pie crust is just that. This makes a perfectly buttery, flakey pie crust that you can use for any sort of pie you desire. From quiches, to fruit pies and even a pecan pie. This crust is my go to that I am sharing for those of you who just want to make a delicious pie without all the fuss.

*Makes 2 standard sized pie crusts

2 1/2 (310g) cups of all purpose flour

1 cup (230g) of salted butter

3-5 tbsp (44g-74g) cold water

Place the lid on to the food processor. Take the pour spout lid out and turn the processor on low. Begin adding your water slowly while the machine mixes. I find that 4 tbsp (59g) is usually perfect.

Your dough is ready when it comes together in the processor. Place the dough onto a floured surface to help with sticking or if making the dough for later. Place the dough into some plastic wrap and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
