Making Homemade Pie Crust

I’m an avid baker, and usually eager to try new things. It was years however before I attempted to make my own homemade pie crust. It always seemed so intimidating. I figured why go through all the hassle when I could buy them pre-made and just add filling! So that’s what I did. Until one day when my mom requested an apple pie and I had everything handy EXCEPT the crust. I contemplated running to the store to buy some but stopped myself. Could I truly call myself a baker without ever having made my own pie crusts? I think not. So I put myself to right to work! I’ve created what I believe to be a super easy, yummy, and healthy recipe for a homemade pie crust.

This was used with my favorite apple pie recipe, which you can find HERE! I loved the outcome, especially with the mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flour. I love for my food to have texture and an earthier feel and I think the whole wheat definitely achieved that! If you don’t have whole wheat flour, or don’t prefer it, then feel free to skip over that part. The same goes for my butter substitute, but I recommend at least trying to give the healthy alternative a try!

 

 

 

 

Easy to make by hand

I created this recipe to be made by hand but if you’d prefer to use a mixer or processor, then please do!  As always you can tweak the recipe as you see fit to best suit your needs. Hope you enjoy!

I used my dough to make a yummy apple pie, find that recipe HERE! I made a nice lattice crust top as well. If you need 2 pie crusts, as I did for my apple pie, then just double the recipe.
