I use this crust for my apple pie
3 cups flour
2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup plus 2 tbsp very cold, unsalted butter, diced
1 tbsp lemon juice
8 tbsp ice water(the video says 6-12 tbsp, depending on humidity, how fast the dough comes together. Start with 4 tbsp and go from there. When you can squeeze the dough in your hands and it stays together, it’s enough water. I only needed 8.
1. In a food processor, add flour, cornstarch, salt and sugar. Pulse to mix.
2. Add the butter cubes, and pulse until the butter is in pea sized pieces.
3. Transfer mixture to a bowl, and add lemon juice and water, a little at a time, mixing, until the dough can just hold together.
4. Wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze for an hour, or put in the fridge overnight. Cut the dough into 2 equal pieces. Then it’s ready to use for a bottom and top for a pie, or just a bottom. You can freeze the other half for another pie. Enjoy!
*You don’t have to finish the dough off by hand in a bowl. I actually tried it all in the food processor and it was fine.
