Pie Crust

This is an easy recipe for a pie crust.  You don’t need a rolling pin, you’ll be pressing it into the pie tin.  Use it for your favorite dessert or main dist.

1 cup + 1 tablespoon flour
1 stick of butter
1 tablespoon cold water
Melt butter in microwave.  Add to flour and stir.  Add one or two tablespoons of water.  (You want pliable dough).  Knead briefly to capture all the flour.
Press pie crust into a standard 8” pie tin.  Be sure to make crust thin and even along bottom and edges.
If pie calls for a baked crust, preheat oven to 425º.  Puncture crust along bottom and sides so steam can escape.  Bake crust for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
