FORM THE DOUGH INTO A DISC AND ROLL

  • Transfer your dough to your counter or work place, and press it down into a circle using your hand. Cover it in plastic wrap, and let it cool for 30 minutes to relax, and help your butter firm back up before rolling it. It can also be frozen for later.
  • Then, uncover your dough and transfer it to your floured surface. Coat your rolling pin with flour, and pepper some on the dough, and roll it out starting from the middle towards the edge, going around from the right. Don’t forget to pick up your dough in between every two rolls to put flour on your work space to keep it from sticking. In case some of your dough sticks, remove it from your counter as it will only make more dough stick to it. Make sure your dough is wide enough to cover the edges of your pan.

  • Now ruffle your edges well, it doesn’t have to be perfect, or make fun shapes using the remainder of your dough.

Notes

Pro tip: Make sure to put as little water as possible initially, then gradually add a tablespoon until your dough is incorporated. How much water you use will differ.
You want to premake your pie crust 1 or 2 days before, and
stick it in your fridge covered in plastic wrap. When rolling,
remove it beforehand and let it sit at room temperature until soft.
You can freeze your dough as soon as it's done processing, just make sure it's covered in plastic wrap and foil after flattering it into a circle to make it easier on you once defrosted. It can also be stored on a freezer safe plate, covered in plastic wrap and foil. Place it in your fridge to defrost overnight.
This recipe is for a 9 inch pie crust, but you can double it if you want more. And skip the sugar for a savory type of crust.
