The Perfect Pie Crust

The Perfect Pie Crust


Ingredients:
3 3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
1/2 to 1 tablespoon unprocessed sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups cold, unsalted butter
2/3 cup ice-cold water
2 tablespoons sour cream (not the low-fat stuff)
1 teaspoon raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar

Directions: In a very large bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. With a pastry blender cut in butter, leaving chunks the size of peas. Combine water, sour cream and vinegar. Add liquid all at once to the flour mixture. Quickly stir to distribute; do not over mix. The dough should be slightly crumbly. Let rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours of overnight. The finished dough should break, not stretch. Divide into three portions and shape into disks. Use at once or wrap and refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to one month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator if frozen. Makes 3 single-crust pastries.

About Me

Sharon Kaufman
Jesus Christ has been my Savior for 47 years. Robert, the wonderful man that God provided to love me has been my husband for 45 of those years. We have five grown children, with children of their own. Of course, that means that we have grandchildren - 10 to be exact, and five great-granddaughters with another great-grandbaby on the way. I have been a stay-at-home mom, sometimes helping to supplement the income from within the home. Now I am a stay-at-home grandmother. Jesus Christ has been my guide and keeper and I have found, in all the trials, heartbreaks and good times that He just keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the years roll by. My future is secure and I look forward to eternity in the presence of my Creator, Redeemer and King.
