For the Flaky Pie Pastry Double Crust

INGREDIENTS

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon Domino® Granulated Sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cup shortening

1/2 to 2/3 cup chilled water, divided

 

DIRECTIONS

1.Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2.In a medium mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until pieces are pea-sized.

3.Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water over part of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push moistened dough to the side of the bowl. Repeat, using 1 tablespoon of water at a time, until all dough is moistened. Form dough into a ball.

4. To make the lattice dough pie crust, roll out dough to 1/4-inch thickness on a surface dusted with confectioners’ sugar.

5.Cut dough into 1/2-inch wide strips. Lay half the strips on the dusted surface, then pull every other strip back. Place a strip across, return the pulled-back strips to their original position and pull back alternate strips. Continue weaving the strips until they’re all used.

6.Once all strips have been weaved through, use the ring of a mason jar top to cut out circles. Place weaved cut outs onto baking sheet. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely. Top each pie jar with a baked crust.

 

CHEF’S TIP

Try other shapes to use for your pie crust, such as cut out leaves or pumpkins.
