Pie Crust

This recipe makes exactly two 9" pie crust, or enough for one pot pie or one fruit pie that you need a top for. A lot of people are so afraid to make pie crust because they fear they might make it wrong, or are just scared to give it a go. Making pie crust does not need to be feared; it is simple, easy, and you do not even need a machine to do it (just use a good old fork and your hands).

You Will Need: 

3 Cups Organic 100% Whole Wheat Flour
2 1/2 Sticks Organic Butter, unsalted & cold, cubed
1 tsp Unrefined Salt
4-8 tbsp Water, ice cold

Dice your cold butter, and place in freeze until you need it

Mix salt and flour

Add in your butter

Work the dough until it is fine crumbs, I just used a fork and my hands, but you can just use your food processor or pastry folder 

Now add in 1 tbsp water at a time, I only use 7 tbsp

Here is the dough, yay! super easy right? Exactly! 

Wrap in plastic wrap until you need it, you can freeze this dough like this, or roll it out and freeze it into the pie pan, once frozen remove and bag
