How to Make an Easy Foolproof Pie Crust:
- Using a pastry blender, combine the dry ingredients until they are crumbly. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
2. Next, roll out the crust and fold in half, and then fold in half again. Arrange the crust in the pie pan so that the point is in the center.
3. Carefully unfold the crust.
You’ll want to make sure that it covers your pie plate completely. You may need to rearrange it.
Sometimes, I’ll take a small piece from one side and add it to the other, just to make sure I have coverage on all sides of my pie plate.
