The Only Pie Dough Recipe You’ll Ever Need


I’m serious about this: Food & Wine’s All-Butter Pie Dough is the only recipe for pie dough you will ever need. It’s made with only four ingredients (flour, salt, butter, and water), or three, if all you can find in your fridge is salted butter and are too lazy to go out and buy unsalted. I’ve used this recipe to make pumpkin pie, blueberry pie, apple pie (photos and a post from Georgia coming soon!), and even quiche.

The recipe is really simple: basically, throw everything in a food processor than refrigerate. It’s pretty tough to mess up. If you’re like some of us food bloggers (who will remain nameless) and don’t read the recipe before you start, putting all the ingredients in the food processor at once will not make the pie any less delicious. And it doesn’t even matter if the only plastic you have to wrap the dough in are two zip-top snack bags, or if you decide to freeze it for ten minutes instead of refrigerating for thirty (did we mention how impatient we can be?). I guarantee you, even if you don’t follow the recipe exactly, it will still taste delicious. I mean, you can’t really go wrong with pie crust containing a whole stick of butter, can you?

By the way…
